As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we have the opportunity to be mindful of and grateful for the times Mary has interceded for us and for the graces and benefits, spiritual and material, with which Jesus has blessed us.
How can we show our thanks to Jesus and Mary? We can do so by both words and deeds. By words – in our prayers, we can be grateful, thanking Jesus and Mary for all they do for us. By our deeds – we can share the blessings we have received with those who are in need. One way you can share your material blessings is by supporting the works of Vincentian Charities.
Through Vincentian Charities, Our Lady of Angels Association helps to fund various programs for the poor which seek to alleviate the spiritual, physical, and material needs of many families. For example, your gift enables our Vincentian priests and brothers to –
- Help stock food pantries and soup kitchens
- Provides financial assistance to those who need help paying medical bills, rent, utility bills, etc.
- Support programs offering financial counseling, e.g. how to budget, and spiritual counseling
- Working with homeless families to find housing and/or shelter
As a sign of our gratitude for your generosity, you and your intentions will be remembered in a Triduum of Masses (three Masses) which will begin on the Feast of Mary’s Immaculate Conception.
