Thanksgiving Day Mass Schedule – NOVEMBER 22


  • Wednesday, November 21 at 7 PM at St. Cyprian Church.
  • Thursday, November 22 at 9 AM at St. Celestine Church.
  • There will be NO communion service at St. Cyprian on Thursday, November 22.
  • You are also invited to bring a loaf of bread to the 9 AM Mass for a special blessing. This bread can then be taken home and shared with family – with friends – with neighbors – with all who will be gathering to partake at your table. Eucharist means the act of thanksgiving, so you are invited to the table of the Lord to give thanks to God for many blessings that He has bestowed upon us. Thanksgiving is not an added extra. It is absolutely central to the life of a Christian. Without a spirit of thanksgiving our Christian lives would be cold and lifeless.
