Words of thanks…

During this week which reminds us of the many things we are grateful for, I would like to pass on to you some recent words of thanks addressed to our St. Ann Parish.

The first was a note from Sr. Olga, RGGS, and the women from Maria Droste home: The Sisters of the Good Shepherd, Staff and Residents of Maria Droste Residence wish to thank each and everyone who helped us make the Trivia night a success through their presence, buying raffle tickets, helped set up and cleaned up the Parish Hall, donating time and talents, materials and prayerful support. Special thank you to Fr. Bill and the Parishioners for donating the use of the Parish hall. You make a difference in the lives of these women in recovery. We will pray for each one of you.

A second note reads: With grateful hearts, during this season of gratitude, please accept the sincerest of thanks from the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation board of directors, staff and our scholarship recipients and families. Thank you for…
Educating our most precious gifts: the children  Your passion and commitment to the education of all children – mind, body and spirit.
Caring, inspiring, nourishing, motivating and instilling a love of learning throughout your school community. God bless you, your faculty and staff, students, families, volunteers and benefactors…..our partners in Education…

And finally, from the Archdiocesan Seminary: During this season of Thanksgiving, the seminary community is grateful to all of the supporters of the Faith for the Future Campaign. Your contribution has done more than renovate the campus and build the endowment. You have furthered the seminary’s mission of helping young men discern their personal call to the holy priesthood. This video (on the Archdiocesan Website) more fully expresses our gratitude and shares some of the impact of your gift. Please take a few moments to view the video and learn how your support has enhanced the formation and education of our future priests.

Let me also add my thanks for everything each of you does for the good of our St. Ann parish. I still consider myself the luckiest priest in the Archdiocese to have been allowed to be the Pastor of this wonderful community these past 10 and a half years…
