I’m really looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with you again this year – my 14th! – WOW! There is so much for which to be grateful. I am grateful for the gift of the Holy Priesthood and the opportunity to continue to serve as your Pastor. I am grateful for your prayerful support for my family. I am especially grateful for your generous practice of stewardship offering your time, talent and treasure for the support of our parish, and the many, many charitable causes that come your way.
SMMA touches the lives of so many people and your support makes that happen. Our Mass schedule Thanksgiving Day is 6:30 am and 9:00 am. During each Mass, you will have the opportunity to place at the altar during the Offertory canned goods or a monetary offering for those less fortunate. The food is taken to the local food pantry; the money is given to our St. Vincent de Paul ministry.
There is an upcoming ACTS Retreat for the men of our parish, Dec. 7- 10th. I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity for spiritual growth and renewal. More information is in the bulletin.
I encourage you to have your picture taken for our Parish Pictorial Directory, especially our newer families, families with children, our PSR families and our Home School families. Of course, our single parishioners are encouraged to participate. Remember our Parish Mission Statement……” all are welcome!” You receive a free 8×10 photo and a copy of the book. Details are above.
