Thanksgiving Day

My mother was very concerned that I would be getting Thanksgiving Dinner somewhere - with turkey of course. I must say that the priests of the Yorkton - Melville Deanery had taken me out for dinner to a wonderful restaurant and roast beef meal in Yorkton after the Centennial celebration on Sunday, so that really was a splendid Thanksgiving dinner itself. None the less I made my way on Monday over to Martha House to my home away from home for some pleasant company with the priests and, as it turned out, a turkey dinner.

There is a new resident at Martha House, Fr. Norm Marcotte, who retired from Holy Cross Parish this summer and is seen here on the left between Fr. Van and Fr. Gene Sheaffer.
I also managed to get a picture of some of the lay residents at Martha house. It is always a pleasure to see them.

The sisters do such a great job of decorating the dining room for these special occasions as you can see here.

And here are the three Sisters of St. Mary of Leuca who run Martha house and provide a warm and pleasant home for the retired priests and lay people who live there. To say nothing of some very good meals!
