THANKSGIVING DAY MASS THURSDAY, November 26 is Thanksgiving Day. There is no better way to begin this day of thanks than by attending Mass with our family and friends to give thanks to God for all His many blessings. Even in the midst of economic hardships, unemployment, sickness, etc., we have much for which to be thankful. So before you go to the parade, the football game or prepare your meal, come to the 9 AM Mass on Thanksgiving Day and “Give thanks to the Lord … for He is good.”
