The Pastor’s Corner

Posted on Nov 21, 2019


Dear Parishioners


Thanksgiving Day is upon us this week and I invite all parishioners and any visiting relatives and friends to participate in our Thanksgiving Day Mass at 9:00 AM this Thursday. Note that this will be the only Mass that day, as it is appropriate for us to gather at one celebration of the Eucharist as one community of faith to give thanks.

Many people comment that Mass on Thanksgiving Day is one of those occasions that seems particularly special, meaningful and uplifting. Although Thanksgiving is not a Holy Day of Obligation on the liturgical calendar, it is a kind of “natural Holy Day,” so to speak. Thanksgiving is embedded in our  identity as Americans, and what the day celebrates makes it a natural occasion to gather to celebrate the Eucharist, as we acknowledge God as the source of every grace and blessing for which we should be thankful. In addition, it is important for us as a parish to continue to build up our life together by celebrating these special liturgical events when possible (You may even spot a young child clad as a pilgrim or Native American at Mass).

Please make every effort to begin your Thanksgiving Day by joining us at the 9:00 AM Mass. Invite a neighbor or friend. Make time to give thanks at God’s altar before the feasting of food, family and football begins.


Thanks to all who have already donated to the Annual Collection. Special thanks to all who so generously exceeded the $200.00 requested per family. In about 4 weeks, we have approximately $60,000 toward our budgeted goal of $100,000. This is about $14,000 behind where we were last year at this time (even with the Grateful for God’s Providence Campaign underway). Not sure exactly why the figures are lagging a bit this year, but let this serve as a gentle reminder to those who have NOT given, to please do so. You may place your donation marked “Annual Collection” in any collection basket, drop it in the rectory mail slot, US mail or via on-line giving. We hope to get near or reach our goal before everybody’s holiday and heating bills arrive.

                                                    Father Forcier
