Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Hon. Silveria Jacobs, is inviting the nation to the service which also marks the end of the hurricane season.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports in collaboration with the Christian Council of Churches, the St. Martin Ministerial Foundation and the Seventh Day Adventist Churches are jointly hosting the annual thanksgiving service.

The Thanksgiving Day proclamation has had a great impact on the community over the years and brings together the different denominations and the community at large.

Churches are encouraged to observe this proclamation during their morning services in their respective house of worship as a day of Thanksgiving.

The general public is invited once more to come prepared to give a love offering which go towards the purchase of goods for Christmas Baskets.

The churches along with the department of Culture are charged with the distribution of the love offerings, amongst the most vulnerable groups within the community.

Thanksgiving Service is observed annually based on the Executive Council’s proclamation of December 1, 1999 which outlines that Thanksgiving Day should be observed on the first Sunday of December following the official end of the hurricane period.
