Good Shepherd Sunday 2019

Last weekend was “Good Shepherd Sunday,” also known as “Pastor Appreciation Day”.  To those who sent gifts, I am making a thank you list; to those who didn’t, I am making a different list.

The most appreciated gifts received were cards from the school children.  I want to share some of the cards with you that were written by our school children:

  • I am so happy you are in our school
  • Thank you for being fun
  • Thank you for being the best pest, I love you.  PS:  Where do you keep your money?
  • What’s your favorite color?
  • Keep doing what you’re doing
  • Thank you for helping with the environment
  • Thank you for being a great pest.  You show us hope and love in God and us.  I will pray the decade of the roiary from you.
  • Thank you so much for everything you do for me and everyone else.  I am thankful for everything you do.
  • I will say a decade of the rosary for you.  Thank you for being our pastor.  You did great at your job.

I have put some of those beautiful cards in the foyer of the church for all of our parishioners to enjoy.  The rest are on my desk.  I thank the children for their beautiful words.  If it sounds like I am boasting…you would be correct!
