Clergy and residents gather in a prayer circle Sunday afternoon during the McKeesport Area Ministerium's annual Thanksgiving prayer service.

The Rev. William B. Meekins Jr. of the United Methodist Church's McKeesport Charge Shared Ministry gave the message, "Giving Thanks," during the service at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Downtown.

Mimi Bandola Langer and Cheryl Myers Cotter were honored with the ministerium's Community Servant Awards for sharing local news stories on their Facebook pages, McKeesport and Neighboring Communities Newswatch and All Things McKeesport.

The musical group Chalice started the program and St. Stephen's music director, Georgia Lebedda, was the featured organist.

Refreshments by Di's Kornerstone Restaurant were served after the event.

Other clergy participating in included the Rev. Steven Palsa of Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church and the Rev. Boniface Igba of Auberle. Gladys Hunt-Mason is the current president of the ministerium, a non-denominational group connecting churches in the McKeesport area.
