We offer thanksgiving for our priest …
With grateful hearts, we embrace Fr. Isaias and Christie Ginson … God’s very special gifts to St. Margaret’s! As we remember them in our Thanksgiving prayers this year, we give thanks to Father, Son and Holy Spirit for abundantly blessing our parish with their loving presence.
… and thanksgiving for all blessings throughout 2017!
May the Holy Spirit be ever-present with us as we go forward from this day to greater happenings in the years ahead for the Glory of God. Amen.
