Dallas ministry brings refugees their first Thanksgiving feast

From Dallas-

The scents of Thanksgiving — freshly roasted turkeys, sweet pecan and spicy pumpkin pies, and a whole batch of side dishes — filled the parish hall at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Lake Highlands on Thursday as people who had never celebrated the holiday were given a feast.

Gateway of Grace, a 4-year-old ministry working with international refugees who find their way to the U.S., sponsored the Thanksgiving gathering with help from several churches. Guiding these newly arrived families through this uniquely American celebration is just one of the services the ministry provides.
