The Spirit of Gratitude

In November, as the holiday season fast approaches, we are filled with a deep sense of sentimentality and gratefulness for all our blessings. At the same time, we encounter many wonderful ways to give – to cheerfully share our own gifts – during this time of thanksgiving.

It’s with this spirit of gratitude that we can truly live out the stewardship way of life. This Thanksgiving there are plenty of ways to do this in a direct way. Is there a family member or friend you have not spoken to in a long time, or someone you know who is spending Thanksgiving alone? You can drop them an email, pick up the phone and call them, or even catch up with them virtually via zoom or facetime. Such connections at this time can be life changing!

This Thanksgiving, ask the Holy Spirit where he is calling you to serve and may the joy of the Thanksgiving season flow into our lives as good stewards, everyday and throughout the entire year.

Our parish family has so much to be thankful for, after all that we have been through over the past several years. The Light of Christ has permeated through the darkness, giving us hope and confidence in our future. May we continue to express our thanks to God by being the very best stewards that we can be.
