During this Thanksgiving season, we celebrate the gifts God gives us each day and pray for those who are in any need.  May we discover in each day the signs of God’s love in each person we meet, in each challenge we endure, and in every blessing that graces our lives. The Sisters of Notre Dame wish you and your families a holy and happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you, good and provident God,
for everything that reveals your love.

We thank you for the heavens above us,
for the earth beneath our feet,
for the sun in the day and the stars of the night,
for the snow and the rain, the rivers mountains and lakes.

We thank you, our God,
for the people who have touched our lives,
for all those who demonstrate your love and compassion.

We thank you for all men and women who have listened to your Word
and live it in their lives.

We thank you for mothers and fathers, for grandparents, and teachers.

We thank you for the children whose innocence brightens our day,
and for young people who are seekers of truth and beauty.

We thank you for artists and musicians and writers,
for farmers and health professionals.

We thank you for those who serve others,
for those whose sacrifices are often hidden.

We thank you for the example of courage we see in the sick and the suffering.

We thank you, God, for choosing us to be your people,
and for allowing us to share in your great work of creation
as we try to communicate the mystery of your love to all those around us.
