St. Mary’s Thanksgiving Celebration

St. Mary's parish was vibrantly bustling with activity on Sunday, November 18th, 2012.

After the celebration of Holy Communion, the parish moved in procession to the grotto of our Lady where there was to be the revelation of the restored statues of Sts. Mary and Bernadette.  The statues, having suffered from time and the vandalism and theft, had been restored and painted after the statue of St. Bernadette had been recovered.  With prayers and hymns, the parish celebrated the event, imploring the protection of the blessed mother.

After the prayer service, the parish held a feast of thanksgiving at the parish hall.  The parish was treated to a succulent thanksgiving meal and delightful desserts prepared by the ladies of the Sisters  of Mary.

We are thankful to God and praise Him for all His great deeds towards us.
