Saint Thérèse, Little Flower Catholic Church is seeking to hire a business manager for the parish.  This essential member of the parish staff is responsible for supporting the pastor in the stewardship of the parish's finances, facilities, and personnel.

Our parish Thanksgiving Mass will be at 9:30 am this Thursday.  Please join us, and bring along a little something for your table to be blessed, whether it be a bottle of wine or loaf of bread or anything else (as long as it doesn’t make our mouths water during Mass!)  I will bless your food at the end of Mass and you can take it home to unite your Thanksgiving table with the Lord’s Eucharistic table and with your parish family!

This Thursday is Thanksgiving. There are so many things that we have to be grateful for. Family, friends, food, football.

But sometimes, we get so distracted by thanking the Lord for all of these things that we forget to be thankful for another sort of blessing. Suffering.

I’ve been doing lots of work with the high school students. We’ve had some very good discussions about apologetics, the Trinity, and the lives of the Saints. A couple weeks ago, we had a blast playing hide and seek with Father Terry in the parish center!

Our Small Things with Great Love three-year pledge-drive is progressing well.  As of Monday the 5th, we have already passed 25% of our goal with the help of our early pledge families.  Now this weekend the rest of us are making our pledges together.  I would like to begin with a thank you to the parish for the support that so many of you have shown leading up to now.  Many have responded to our capital campaign and we hope to share the results of your generosity next week. When each family gives even $2, $3, $5 or more per day over the next three years, it will allow us to enrich our parish for decades to come with a comfortable, clean, and prayerful church that invites others to be a part of the true worship we offer here. Thank you for your continued support.

Heavenly Father, King and Lord,
You instill in all of Your creation an
order and value. 
You call Your children "very good."
We surrender to You
the conflicts that tear your family 
apart.
