A Month of Thanksgiving


This November, we pay special attention to our Saints, our Souls in Purgatory, family and friends we’ve lost, our Veterans and for those things we are most grateful for. It’s a preparatory time as we move closer and closer to our very holy time of Advent. Preparing ourselves for Christ to come again. Reflection on our past and planning for our future. Ensuring faith in God is always at the center of what we do. I would like to thank Fr. John and the St. Thomas Parish for the beautiful Monstrance that was presented to HFCS this morning. Adoration was a blessed opportunity for our children and faith family to join together in special reflection on the Blessed Sacrament and the gift of Jesus Christ in our lives. We will continue Adoration after Mass as we move through the Advent season and classes will have the opportunity to gather in prayer in our chapel as well.

As I reflect on this year, I am most thankful for the Holy Family Catholic community. HFCS is steeped in traditions that bind us together as one family in Christ. May your November be filled with love and thanksgiving. Find special time to pray together as a family – remembering what is most important to us all. Please, if ever you have questions, concerns, ideas on how we can make HFCS even better, don’t hesitate to contact my staff and make an appointment to come in and speak with me. My door is always open.

Pax et Bonum,

Sue Styren
