“For This I Am Grateful…” Joana Maynard to be featured speaker at BC’s Annual Multi-Faith Thanksgiving Celebration

Boston College’s annual Multi-Faith Thanksgiving Celebration will take place on Thursday, November 18, at noon in the Heights Room of Corcoran Commons.  This joyful celebration of song, reflection and prayer brings students, staff and faculty from a variety of religious traditions together in thanksgiving and fellowship.

This year’s program will feature Joana Maynard, Assistant Director of AHANA Student Programs, who will share a personal reflection with participants.  Joana is involved in a variety of interfaith and service work at Boston College.  For example, she recently participated in the annual BC Common Ground Interfaith Retreat, a day-long opportunity for students, faculty and staff to come together to experience various spiritual practices  represented on our campus and to dialogue about the implications of interfaith life.  Joana is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree with a specialization in Ministry in Complex Urban Settings.

The Multi-Faith Thanksgiving Celebration will conclude with a light buffet lunch.  Additionally, as part of the celebration, the sponsoring organizations are partnering with “Spread the Bread” to assist needy families during the Thanksgiving season.  Please consider joining this effort by baking or purchasing a gift of bread or other baked goods to be collected at the celebration.  For those unable to bake, an opportunity to make a donation will also be available.

The Multi-Faith Thanksgiving Celebration is sponsored by: Latino/as at Boston College, The Offices of Campus Ministry and the Vice president for University Mission and Ministry, and The Undergraduate Government of Boston College.
