In light of the upcoming celebration of Thanksgiving, I would like to take the opportunity to wish each of you, the members of your families, and your friends a very Happy Thanksgiving and express my heartfelt gratitude to all of the parishioners and associates of our parish. You all have given me such a warm welcome here and have been extremely helpful to me over the last four months. Early on, one parishioner did humorously remind me that, although this might be the case, their efforts were for the parish and not me. However, I still regard any efforts that have been put forth and any good that has been done since my arrival here as favors from you. Before God, I am charged with the responsibility of making St. Eugene Church flourish and grow and so many of you are working hard to make this possible. So, in short, “THANK YOU!”
In particular, I would like to thank the people on the list I have enclosed (click here to view list) as a bulletin insert this weekend. Those on this list are the parishioners who have helped out here with the various projects and facets of parish life. I have done my best to make this list comprehensive, but, if I have missed anyone, I do apologize and I still very much appreciate what you have done.
In Him, Fr. D
