Hello. My name is Michael Hicks. My wife, Kat, and I have been members of St. Patrick’s church for five years. I really want to tell you how “lucky” I have been. While growing up, I had wonderful parents, family, and friends. I had a great job for many years and I lived, in peace, in the greatest country on the planet.
From the Christian values that my parents and the Church instilled in me, I know that God has given me all these things. How does one even begin to show appreciation? Unfortunately, I wasn’t always the best at doing so. My life was “too busy” and I didn’t have “the time”.
We do, however, make time for what we feel is important. Giving back to God should be what is most important.
There are so many ways to give back to God. For me, it was joining the Knights of Columbus and helping at our PSR school.
Most importantly, we all should continue to support our Church, and our faith, and instill in our children the values that WILL make anyone “lucky”. It is the very least we can do to show our appreciation for what God has done for us.
