Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26:

This Thursday, we had a double feast: it was Thanksgiving, and it was also the feast of our Founder, Bl. James Alberione. We began our day with Mass. Then we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV while we decorated and prepared our dinner. Jackie made kale, Emily made green bean casserole, and Sylwia made cranberry sauce. All the sisters made something, too, and we had a delicious meal! Later in the afternoon, we had our Hour of Adoration together and gave thanks for the gift of our Founder and our Pauline charism. Then we had an fun evening of recreation together with music, dancing, and games. We give thanks! Dziękuję! Asante!
P.S. What are you thankful for this year?
