November and thanksgiving go hand in hand.  That is especially true this year with the installation of the new Bishop of St. Cloud, Donald J. Kettler. We are so blessed and thankful to have him as our Shepherd.

novemberWhat was also so special about this first week of November is all catechists that serve in our parishes were remembered in the first annual Parish Catechetical Week.  It is quite coincidental that the chief catechist of this diocese was installed this week.  If that isn’t the gift of the Holy Spirit, I don’t know what is!

This whole week has been incredible.  Monday, November 4th, Robert Feduccia presented to catechetical leaders on New Evangelization.  Robert was the founding director of the Youth Liturgical Leadership Program at St. Meinrad School of Theology. His presentation was outstanding and very informational for our parish leaders.  Many positive comments were received.

The Diocese of Saint Cloud has 165 youth and adults registered for NCYC in Indianapolis, Indiana November 21-23. Please pray for our youth and adults as they prepare to gather with 25,000 others to celebrate and learn more about their Catholic Faith.

See how much we have to be thankful for!  God is good all the time!  All the time, God is good!

Happy Thanksgiving!
