A Message from Father Mark Jette
FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK
On this Thanksgiving week, I want to express my thanks to our parishioners who give so generously of themselves to our parish in many ways. Just as we can take God’s blessings for granted, we can also take for granted the service and support of our parishioners. As we give thanks to God this week, we give thanks also for the time, talents, and treasure of the people of our parish. God bless all of you.
THANKSGIVING MASS SCHEDULE
Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve, 7:00 PM at St. Joseph

PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land, but it is fed and watered by God’s almighty hand. He sends the snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain, the breezes and the sunshine, the soft refreshing rain. He only is the maker of all things near and far. He paints the wayside flower, He lights the evening star. The winds and waves obey Him, by Him the birds are fed, much more to us His children, He gives our daily bread. We thank You then, dear Father, for all things bright and good, the seed time and the harvest, our life, our health, our food. And all that we can offer, Your boundless love imparts, the gifts to You most pleasing are humble, thankful hearts. All good gifts around us are sent from heaven above. Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord for all His love.
