The annual Ridgefield community interfaith Thanksgiving service will be held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 5 p.m. The event, sponsored by the Ridgefield Clergy Association (RCA), welcomes people of all religious traditions, and is a collective effort of the clergy, Christian and Jewish, who lead congregations in Ridgefield.
Monsignor Kevin Royal, newly arrived at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, will give the Thanksgiving reflection, and First Selectman, Rudy Marconi, will read the Thanksgiving proclamation. An offering will be collected to benefit those in need. Dr. Alcee Chriss, St. Stephen’s new minister of music, and Charles Frederick Secrease, artistic director of the Fountain Music Concert Series, are creating a program of choral selections, hymns, solo and instrumental music.
