Commentary by Lynn Wolf
Thanksgiving began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Today, we celebrate Thanksgiving, counting our blessings and giving thanks by sharing food and drinks with friends and family. For some, though, traveling to visit family or cooking a large Thanksgiving dinner is not an option. No one should be alone on Thanksgiving, and no one should go to bed with an empty stomach.
With that in mind, the Saint Louis de Montfort parish is grateful to host a Thanksgiving dinner for anyone in the community that is in need.
Please join us if you need a warm meal, if you are unable to visit family or friends, if you are elderly or alone or if you would enjoy the company.
We are thankful to be a part of this community and would love to share our feast with you.
Date: Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23, 2017
Time: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Location: St Louis de Montfort Church, 111441 Hague Rd.
Dinner will include turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, rolls and dessert.
This is the third year for Saint Louis de Montfort’s Thanksgiving dinner and you can help make it a success. There was a lot of food left over last year so please share this information with anyone you know who might be interested. Pickup and carryout are available. If you have any questions, please call 317-517-4256.
