Dear Parishioners,

At the end of a special meal commemorating the journey of Israel’s journey from the slavery of Egypt into the freedom of God’s promises, Jesus transformed bread and wine into the sacrificial offering of his Body and Blood. He did this in thanksgiving to the Father.

Jesus longed for the restoration of Israel and the salvation of the nations. He offered his Body and Blood as spiritual food to establish a new covenant and to inaugurate a new participation in the intimate relationship Jesus enjoyed with God the Father. With profound thanksgiving, Jesus petitioned the Father: “May they be one, Father as we are one.”

The Eucharist (which means “thanksgiving”) is still the most powerful means by which Jesus’ presence is recognized in the world.  It is the sublime manifestation  of God’s abiding love for us.

In just a few days, we will gather with our families and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving. This national holiday has its roots in the primacy of religious freedom on which our country is founded. It is a time to honor and praise God for his providence and protection. In times of feasting or fasting, we are all called to give witness to a hope rooted in the love and mercy of God.

Let us gather in true communion and thanksgiving at 9 AM Mass on Thanksgiving Day that we might offer profound gratitude for the countless graces and blessing that God bestows on us.

Thanksgiving Day Table Blessing

 God most provident, we join all

creation in raising to you a hymn of

thanksgiving through Jesus Christ, your Son.

 For generation upon generation

peoples of this land have sung of

your bounty; we too offer you

praise for the rich harvest we have

received at your hands.

 Bless us and this food which we

share with grateful hearts.

 Continue to make our land fruitful

and let our love for you be seen in

our generous response to those in need.

Praise and glory to you, Lord God,

now and forever. Amen. 

Adapted from the Book of Blessings, 1988 USCCB.
