Thanksgiving Message from Father Shelton

I give thanks to God for: His merciful Son; for our forward-looking bishop; for Father Collins and our deacons; for Cyndi and our office staff; for the Nashville Dominicans and our school staff, students and parents, especially those parents who make great sacrifices to educate their children in a Christian environment; for our Legion of Mary and their dedication to the Spiritual Works of Mercy; for our new Society of Saint Vincent de Paul and their dedication to the Corporal Works of Mercy; and for all those associations, families, individual parishioners and neighbors whose labor and leisure make our parish and our town a good and Godly place to live. In a special way, I give thanks to God for those clergy, religious and lay leaders who once laid the foundations of our parish community and facilities, and who now rest in the peace of Christ.
