Remain in me as I remain in you, says the Lord. Whoever remains in me bears much fruit.

Special Thanksgiving Morning Mass

Please plan ahead to join us in prayer on Thursday, November 23 at 9 am, at our special bilingual Thanksgiving Eucharist in gratitude to God for His many blessings. You are invited to bring bread or other items to be shared at your Thanksgiving meal to be blessed. Rather than a monetary collection on Thanksgiving, you are invited to bring non-perishable food items to assist our sisters and brothers in need through our Hope’s Pantry and Manna Ministry.

Food Bank Annual Food Drive

We are very grateful for the support that our Hope’s Pantry and Manna Ministry receive weekly from the County Food Bank. We will be participating this year in the Food Bank’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. A Food Bank barrel has been placed at the entrance of the Church. This Sunday, Nov. 19, will be the last day for donations. Any non-perishable food items will be appreciated.

Eucharistic Adoration

One of our Why Catholic? communities has suggested that we offer a special opportunity for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The beautiful and very meaningful form of prayerful meditation recalls the agony of our Lord in the garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36-46). Recognizing Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, we are asked to offer an hour of prayer as we remember his words of to Peter: “So you could not keep watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test.” (Matthew 26: 40-41).

Please consider offering an hour to our Lord on Wednesday, November 22, the day before Thanksgiving; an appropriate day to remember in prayer and gratitude Jesus’ love poured out for us and for our God’s abundant gifts. The Eucharistic Adoration will take place following the 7:00 am Mass, and continue throughout the day, until 7:00 pm when we will conclude with a final prayer and blessing with the Blessed Sacrament. A signup list is available on a clipboard near the entrance of the Church. Please consider offering an hour in prayer on Nov. 22. If you have questions, please speak with Lonni Trykowski at 831-625-0198.
