Thanksgiving Day Mass

This November 22, 2018 - Thanksgiving Day, 

Join us in giving Thanks to the LORD


 

Our celebration will begin at 8:50 a.m. with the reading of the Presidential Proclamation.

 Mass will start at 9:00 a.m. 

To incorporate all of our distinct communities into this great celebration, the Liturgy will be multilingual. Choirs from our different communities will be present to fill our celebration with music in different languages and styles. The Aztec Dancers will be with us again this year performing one of their traditional dances. 



Donations

Our collection on this day will be given to our group Saint Vincent De Paul who feeds and aids the needy of our surrounding area throughout the year. You are welcome to bring nonperishable food, canned goods or a monetary donation. 


 

Who would you like to thank?

As part of our upcoming celebration of Thanksgiving, we are offering the opportunity for you to think about who you would like to thank. We are encouraging everyone to write a letter or thank you note to someone significant in your life. This person could be living or deceased. Sometimes by writing your thoughts it can offer a sense of special gratitude, of release, of unspoken words, of meaningful memories.

Give your letters to us, either in the Sunday collection basket (mark it “Thanksgiving Thank You”) or to the Parish Office. We will put these letters in a basket near the altar for the week of Thanksgiving, and they will be blessed on Thanksgiving Day. We ask you to put your letters in envelopes. No one will read them. If you would like the letter to be mailed, please address the envelope and we will mail it for you after Thanksgiving. If it is not to be mailed, simply seal the envelope. After Thanksgiving, the letters that do not have addresses will be burned. This wonderful holiday and tradition of giving thanks allows us the opportunity to reflect on the people who have been significant in our lives. These letters can help you share and express your feelings and gratitude.
