Dear Friends -
November is a month of remembering and thanksgiving, so to celebrate, our weekly newsletter will share a prayer of gratitude each week throughout the month.
In recognition of the Feast of All Saints, The Feast of All Souls, American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month, and Black Catholic History Month, let us take time out of our busy lives to remember, celebrate, and give thanks to those who came before us.
