On October 14, our province celebrates Canadian Thanksgiving Day with our sisters, associates, and staff in Canada. We give God praise and thanks for all we have received and pray in gratitude for the abundant blessings bestowed upon us, our family, friends, and congregation.
In the midst of our abundance, let us remember our responsibility to pray for the needs of our world, especially for all those who are victims of violence, war, abuse, and alienation. May the strength of our prayers open up avenues of healing, comfort and radical changes in the systems that keep people oppressed. May we continue to be witnesses of hope and love to all we encounter.
We wish all of our sisters in Canada a very happy Thanksgiving Day! Let us come before God with grateful hearts to express our gratitude for all the blessings and gifts we have received. May this day be for you, a time of prayer, gratitude and great joy. Happy Thanksgiving Day!
