Dear Friends and Parishioners of Saint Malachi,
This week we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. As a nation we give thanks to our dear Lord for the many blessings He continually bestows upon us.
Join us for Thanksgiving Day Mass at Saint Malachi Parish this Thursday, November 23, at 9:00am, followed by a light breakfast prepared by the Back Door Ministry.
Wherever you find yourselves on this special day, let us prayerfully join together:
Heavenly Father, as we gather on this day of Thanksgiving, we remember the words of Holy Scripture that call us to give thanks in all circumstances. Lord, we thank You for the countless blessings You have bestowed upon us, both in times of joy and in times of challenge.
We are grateful for the love of family and friends who surround us, for the food on our table, and for the shelter over our heads. Most of all, we thank You for Your presence in our lives, for Your grace, and for the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ.
Help us, dear Lord, to always maintain hearts filled with gratitude, not just on this special day but every day of our lives. May we continue to count it all joy and to give thanks in all things. In Jesus’ name, we offer this prayer of thanksgiving. Amen.
Gratefully yours in Christ,
