Today we are thanking God for YOU! Our wonderful parishioners make this a community that radiates the joy of the Lord. Our prayers are with you.
Do a little pre-planning for Thanksgiving and let us know what you're thankful for today!
Continue to pray for the souls in purgatory. Also, consider how you can prepare yourself for purgatory. As Fr. Logan preached this past weekend, purgatory gives us the "time" we need to become ready to be with our Lord. This is a blessing, a gift, to us!
