Annual Thanksgiving Service
Thursday, November 26 at 10:00am
Delivering the Thanksgiving message
at our ecumenical service will be:
Reverend Canon Mark Robinson
Retired rector of St. Ann’s Episcopal Church in Old Lyme, CT
and former rector of Calvary Church in Stonington
Also participating in the service will be:
Reverend Sunil Chandy
Rector of Westerly’s Christ Episcopal Church
Reverend David Stall
Senior pastor of First Hopkinton Seventh Day Baptist Church
The traditional Thanksgiving offering,
matched by the Chapel’s endowment,
will be divided among four local charities:
The Johnnycake Center of Westerly
The Living Supplies Closet
The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center
The WARM Center
In this time of the pandemic and economic hardship, contributions to these charities are more crucial than ever. There will be baskets at the door to receive the offering. In addition, donations marked "Thanksgiving offering" can be made on our website or mailed to Watch Hill Chapel, 5 Bluff Avenue, Watch Hill, RI 02891.
Safety precautions, following CDC guidelines for faith-based gatherings, have been implemented in both the Sanctuary and Undercroft. Hand sanitizer, face masks and pews marked for social distancing will be available. Those attending in person are asked to wear face coverings on entering and exiting the Chapel. When the Sanctuary reaches capacity, extra, socially-distanced seating will be provided in the Undercroft, where the service will be simulcast. Additionally, the service can be attended remotely on the our website and on the Watch Hill Chapel Facebook page.
All are welcome!
