Dear Parish Family,
This week we will celebrate Thanksgiving as a country. We recall the Pilgrims and Indians sharing food and giving thanks for the blessings that the Lord provided for them in this country. God has given each of us much to be thankful for this year. I am thankful for the Parish and School and the people who make up Precious Blood and Holy Trinity Catholic School. None of the ministry Benedict and I do, would be possible without a dedicated staff and team of volunteers. I encourage you to express your appreciation when you see one of the staff members. Tell them thanks and what you appreciate about them. I give thanks to the many sacrifices you have made in Stewardship of time, talent and treasure, which allow us to perform the ministry to God’s people. God bless you for your tithing and know how critical this is for our Parish and School to provide ministry to all of you. Your gift of presence at Mass and many Parish events is another reason for my gratitude. We are also blessed with our Catholic School, Holy Trinity and the Religious Education program that serve our young people. If you see our Principals, Jon and Jenna, teachers or catechists, please thank them for their work. Join me in thanking the many volunteers who assist them for their gift of time and talent. Our faith is a gift from God; our life is a precious gift; this week give praise to our Lord for all he has given you including family, friends, and fellow parishioners. Know of my prayers of thanksgiving for all of you. I am grateful to have the honor of serving you as Pastor/Priest Delegate. I pray that all of you enjoy a meal with your loved ones and I look forward to sharing the Eucharist with all of you this week. Happy Thanksgiving!!
