Thanksgiving Letter 2018
We are approaching Thanksgiving Day. We prepare ourselves for the Holidays Season. I invite you to begin this season with the question that we ask around the table on Thanksgiving Day:
What are you THANKFUL for?
I am thanking God for the people of IHM and St. Mary’s! What a joy is to be your pastor. I thank God for the beautiful congregations that He has gathered around the table so Fr. Nelson and myself can consecrate the bread of Life that nourishes our souls. I am grateful for our students and parents who believe and trust that Catholic education can make an impact in their lives and faith.
We have so much to be grateful for. We have much more than we could even imagine… we are a blessed community.
I am grateful for you and your trust in the priesthood that we represent. I am aware that we are going through a difficult time in the Church and your prayers and trust are our support.
Since Thanksgiving is all about grateful hearts… I ask you to think about one priest or many that have made a positive impact in your life. Give thanks to the Lord for him or them.
Now look around the table and say thanks in your heart for each one of the family members who are around you and for those who are not but always present in your heart.
Happy Thanksgiving! Blessings!
“GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD, FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER!”
Fr. Ruben Quinteros - Pastor
