Thanksgiving in the Parish, 2014

Two key events mark our celebration of Thanksgiving in the parish community. We hope you will respond to all these opportunities for prayer and fellowship. There are two special customs on Thanksgiving morning: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2014

9:00 AM Thanksgiving Day Mass and Sharing Thanksgiving Bread

Bake a loafThanksgiving 9 of bread or dessert bread or rolls and bring it to church with you, wrapped with a note card from you and your family.

Place it at the altar and after Communion, it will be blessed and then we will distribute all the bread to everyone present – you will receive someone else’s loaf to take to your Thanksgiving table.

What an amazing way to “give thanks” and celebrate our connections to each other through the Eucharistic Table where we gather every week.

(Can’t bake? Try it! Or, find a bakery and buy a nice loaf of special bread for someone to share at their Thanksgiving table). But come and share Thanksgiving Bread!

SHARING THANKSGIVING DAY: 2014 – In 2011 we began the custom of offering a Thanksgiving Meal with all the trimmings on Thanksgiving Day from 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM. We served folks in need in our MAK Family Life Center and delivered meals to Meals on Wheels recipients, local senior centers and non-profit organizations. In 2012 we fed about 400 people in this way.  Once more this year, we seek to serve in the same way. It can only happen with your assistance.

November in the Parish, 2014

WE PAUSE.  WE REMEMBER.  WE PRAY

NOVEMBER 2014: A Month to Remember the Faithful Departed during November the church calls us to remember all of those who have died. We believe they are still members of the church with us and we have the obligation to pray with and for them, and they for us!
The month begins with the great feasts of All Saints and All Souls. We have arranged a few other opportunities to honor those who have gone before us.

Please join us if you can. (please open this link for details:  November 2014 In the Parish)
