Happy Thanksgiving!
Praise be Jesus Christ now and forever! To our devoted parishioners of St. Rose,

How quickly the celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday has come upon us! It just seems like yesterday that we were enjoying the warmth of the golden summer sun, the sights, sounds, and rhythm of a slower pace of life and all that summer offers. And now we turn our hearts and minds in gratitude to the Giver of all good gIfts, to God the Father, to His Son Jesus, "who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens," and to the Holy Spirit, source of life and love!

In my prayer of thanksgiving to God, I am most grateful to each and every one of you for the gift you are to our parish and schools! Thank You for being part of our community and thank you for all you do. You will be remembered in a special way as Father Walter and I celebrate the Parish Mass of Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day at 9:00 in the morning.

Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends.....and in all things, give thanks!

"Remember the past with gratitude. Live the present with enthusiasm. Look forward to the future with confidence." (St. John Paul II)

May the Lord bless you and keep you always in His Love! HAPPY AND BLESSED THANKSGIVING!

Father Ed
