“Let us pray that the Lord gives us the grace to envisage a world in which no one must ever again die of hunger. And asking for this grace, I give you my blessing.” Pope Francis, September 12, 2013
Each year our Thanksgiving Day Mass provides Mission parishioners and friends an opportunity to gather and express our gratitude to God for his many graces and blessings. It is also an occasion to share our abundance with our sisters and brothers in need. This year we will be paying special tribute to all Military personnel in gratitude for their service to our great nation.
Our special Thanksgiving Day Mass will be November 24 at 9 am. You are invited to attend and participate by:
1. bringing non-perishable food items for holiday baskets. You will be asked to bring your donation to the Altar at the Offertory of the Mass. Cash donations are also welcomed.
2. all Military personnel, past and present, are invited to attend Mass dressed in uniform and be a part of the entrance procession. If you would like to participate in our special American Flag Ceremony, please contact the Parish Office. Scouts are also invited to participate.
3. bring the bread and/or wine to be shared at your Thanksgiving table for a special blessing during the Mass.
There will be only one Mass on Thanksgiving Day at 9 am.
