Month of November

By Agnes Kioskli

​The month of November celebrates three very important events in the Liturgical calendar. 

November 1st is All Saints Day, November 2nd is All Souls Day and November 23rd is Thanksgiving Day!

Yes indeed, Thanksgiving Day is not a feast but a special event that we give importance by celebrating it on the last Thursday in November.

We give thanks to God with a grateful hearts!

We give thanks to God for the many blessings we  have received in life not just on Thanksgiving Day but in every moment!

This is the time of the year when we remember to share what we have with others especially with those less fortunate. This is the time when I ask my CCD students to bring can goods so we can give it to the poor family in our parish community.

In reality we should remember the less fortunate throughout the year . 

This is also the time when we are gathered together with our friends and relatives to share the blessings we received from God.

And for some of us who are tight in our budgets, we still can share our blessings by praying for the whole world , for world peace, for unity throughout the world and may LOVE reign in everyone’s heart.
