Approximately 225 people were on hand to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner inside Trinity Episcopal Church in Pass Christian, Mississippi Thursday. Along with a few dozen local residents and Trinity parishioners, about 125 college students - volunteers for Campus Crusade for Christ chapters in Colorado, Ohio, West Virginia, and Michigan, plus a group from Galluadet Universit, all there to do the filthy and backbreaking work of cleaning up the massive amounts of debris still littering the Pass Christian area - chowed down on turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, rolls, iced tea, applie pie, pecan pie and pumpkin pie.
Following a late-morning worship service, Father Chris gave thanks on the front lawn of the church.
Dinner and all it involved was funded by the American Anglican Council. Ricky and Pam Hopton, their daughters Carrie and Chelsea, Bill and Margaret Buhner, my wife Stacey and me, all from St. Philip's in Jackson; plus Susan Stone and her daughter Alexia from Savannah, Georgia prepared the meal. Carol Rogers Smith, also from Savannah, helped in advance during her the previous weekend. We had purchased enough food for 500 servings. The balance of our food, plus most of our supplies, was donated to God's Katrina Kitchen.
