Jennie Augusta Brownscombe, The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth, 1914, Pilgrim Hall Museum, Plymouth, Massachusetts
From: Office of Mission Advancement
For many of us, November is a time to reflect on the countless blessings received over the past year and to express gratitude to the people who have inspired and influenced our lives. The Office of Mission Advancement would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping make possible the many ministries, programs, and services available throughout the Archdiocese of Louisville.
We are so thankful for our priests, deacons, parish/school staff and volunteers, and all the archdiocesan employees who work face-to-face and behind the scenes in service to our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are so very grateful to the Catholic parishioners throughout the Archdiocese of Louisville for your prayers, encouragement, and faithful support as we seek to fulfill Christ’s mission for our local Church.
May you and your loved ones be always blessed with joy, inspiration, and purpose in your lives. Happy Thanksgiving!
As we give thanks, we also would like to share Archbishop Kurtz’s message of thanks to the Catholic people of the Archdiocese:
Happy Thanksgiving! We gather this season to be thankful for what we have, for the family we love, the friends we cherish, the blessings of the past year and for blessings still to come. May we be ever grateful for God’s unfailing grace.
As you may know, I am in North Carolina. I want to express how thankful I am for your continued thoughts and prayers for my health as I recover from surgery and the cancer treatments over the last several months. The Catholic faithful of the Archdiocese of Louisville are a great inspiration to me.
Wishing you a harvest of blessings, good health, and hope in the Lord. God bless you, and happy Thanksgiving!
