Ecumenical Service In New Milford

On Sunday, November 23, the churches of New Milford, PA will join for an ecumenical Thanksgiving Service at 7:00 PM at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Main St. Participating in the service will be the First Baptist Church, St. John’s R. C. Church, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, and the United Methodist Church. The Rev. Canon Carol Horton, rector of St. Mark’s will be the host and officiant. The Rev. Canon Edward K. Erb, rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church, Hamlin, PA will be the preacher.

"We are so happy to host our partners in the community of faith for this annual service of Thanksgiving," said Canon Horton, "especially since we have just installed a new pipe organ, which is a gift to St. Mark’s. We want to share this wonderful gift with our community."

The Rev. Canon Edward K. Erb will preach at New Milford Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service.

Canon Erb has been rector of St. John’s Church since 1998. He is one of two canons for Liturgy and Music in the Episcopal Diocese of Bethlehem. Prior to entering the priesthood, Canon Erb served several parishes in full-time music ministry, directing 5 singing choirs, two hand bell ensembles, and the installation of a new 42-rank pipe organ. He holds a certificate in Congregation Development and served a residency in Clinical Pastoral Education at Hershey Medical Center. Along with his parish ministry, Canon Erb is a leader of youth events for his diocese, is chaplain for Goosepond Scout Reservation of the Boy Scouts, and gives organ recitals at local churches. He and Susan, his wife of 23 years, have two sons in college.

Also participating in the service will be the Rev. Joyce Allen, the Rev. Louis Kaminski, and the Rev. David Riley.

The offering at the service will benefit the Route 11 Corridor Ministry.
