North Hills Churches Join in Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service

Parishioners of different denominations in the North Hills of Pittsburgh join together for an ecumenical service on the eve of Thanksgiving 2018.

Parishioners from different churches and different faiths joined together for the annual ecumenical Thanksgiving-eve worship service in the North Hills. The service featured a combined choir of 50+ singers from 6 different churches and parishes, accompanied by organ, piano, and seven instrumentalists.

Father Paul Zywan led the service as pastor of the host church. St. Alexis Roman Catholic Church in Wexford. St. Alexis was joined by Northmont United Presbyterian Church in McCandless (that's their pastor Rev. Ben Robbins talking with Father Zywan after the service), Memorial Park Presbyterian Church, St. John Neumann, St. Alphonsus and Assumption Roman Catholic Churches.

"What a beautiful sight to see us worshiping together. We are honored to host this event." Father Paul Zywan, St. Alexis Church, Wexford
