Choirs and musicians from Quad-City area churches are joining together to present the fourth annual interfaith Celebration of Thanks performance.

This free event takes place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, at Sacred Heart Church, 150 Fleury St. in Prescott.

The public is invited to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to Prescott Community Cupboard, but a donation is not required to enjoy the celebration.

This year’s celebration theme is, “Grateful to Know You — One in Community.”

The evening will include a candle-lighting ceremony, children and adult choirs, and other live musical performances by local groups and soloists from a variety of religious faiths. There will also be brief Thanksgiving readings and congregational singing. It will be an evening of shared reflection and gratitude.
