Churches: November 20-26, 2016
The following area houses of worship have submitted calendars for Sunday through Nov. 26.
Any congregation wanting to have its calendar for the week of Nov. 27 through Dec. 3 published in The Ledger Nov. 25 should provide information to the newsroom by 9 a.m. Wednesday. Note the early deadline because of the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday. The Fairfield Ledger office will not be open Thursday, so the Nov. 25 Religion page will be paginated on Wednesday afternoon.
Listings are not perpetually printed. A weekly or monthly calendar must be submitted for the listing to appear in The Fairfield Ledger; specify if the submitted calendar is for the week or the month.
Updates can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, mailed to PO Box 110, Fairfield 52556 or dropped off at The Ledger office.
