My message this week is an invitation to everyone to come together on Thanksgiving Day for the celebration of Mass. The liturgy will be offered at 9:00 AM at Our Lady of Sorrows Church. Included in the Mass will be the Blessing of Bread for our Thanksgiving table. Let us make this national holiday also a holyday in offering to the Lord our thanks for the many blessings we have received—personally and as a nation.
In the final days of this month, let us also continue our prayers for the faithful departed. It is one way and the best way of continuing our love for those who have gone before us in faith.
Join us for our monthly Youth Ministry Mass- students are invited to participate in the liturgy by being a lector, ushering, and bringing up the gifts. We also welcome music by Sibling Rivalry at this Mass.
