Happy Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

 

On behalf of my family and I we would like to wish you and your families a blessed and joyful  Thanksgiving. Let us use this day to really cherish and give thanks for the relationships that sustain us—in our families, in our parish and in our communities. We express our appreciation for the satisfaction of work and the joys of leisure as we live in peace and prosperity. Yet, I think we as believers agree that our greatest blessings are not necessarily material ones. Perhaps the best thing about Thanksgiving is that it reminds us that God loves each and every one of us. As our true Father, He always stands ready to comfort, guide, and forgive us. That is our real cause for Thanksgiving, today and every day of our lives.

 

Yours In Christ,
Fr. Peter Zougras
