November 18, 2014

Dear Lord,

I am thankful for:

  • Charlie DeGrange’s improved health.
  • The benefactors of Our Lady of Victory School who continue to support us.
  • The parents, alumni families, parishioners and friends, who continue to serve our community through the parents club, school board, crab feed, development committee, scrip office and much more.
  • The students, who demonstrate enthusiasm and eagerness to learn and serve as Christ did.
  • Eric Ceballos, who reminded me today, there is always a time to pray.
  • The dedication of faculty and staff to Our Lady of Victory School.
  • The many years of strong spiritual guidance from Monsignor Moreton.
  • The bright spiritual light of Father Dan, Father Jesus, Father Showreddy, Deacon Kurt, Deacon Nai and Seminarian Andy Ruperto.
  • The unique opportunities given to me as principal of Our Lady of Victory School.

Have a restful and safe Thanksgiving break!  Go in peace and don’t run in the halls!

Saint Andrew the Apostle St. Andrew worked as a fisherman and may have been a disciple of St. John the Baptist. He became one of the first to follow Jesus and introduced his brother, Simon Peter, to him. He is the patron saint of Scotland.

Pray For– Charlie DeGrange and his family; Monica Blanco-Etheridge as she recovers from cancer; Adam Lee’s grandmother; for safety to all those traveling over the Thanksgiving Holiday.
