That having been said, I ended the day having Thanksgiving Dinner at Martha House, a residence for retired priests of the Diocese. It added a pleasant warmth to a cool and wintry day.
As you can see, the Sisters did a very fine job of decorating to make the Thanksgiving meal a special one. There are six priests and three lay people who live at Martha house which is well looked after by the community of Sisters: the Daughters of St. Mary of Leuca.
And here are the three Sisters. They deserve special thanks for providing such a caring atmosphere at Martha House and for giving us all a very delicious and abundant meal to remind us of all of God's gifts given to us from the always loving heart of our God.
We give you thanks Almighty God, for these and all your gifts, through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
