1 Prayer, 2 Invites, 3 Ideas
We live in uncertain times. We aren't sure if we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with our families. The Covid 19 case numbers are on the rise.

The Daily Examen is a way that we can pray that helps us to recognize God's movement throughout our day and our response to that presence. Want to know more? Brian and Tucker explain the Daily Examen here:

3 More Ways to Practice this month's Corporal Work of Mercy
1. Just $2.05 buys Thanksgiving dinner for someone at Midland's Open Door. Consider donating a meal or two.
2. Consider fasting one day this week. When you feel hungry, pray for those who go hungry every day.
Try not to purchase more food than you are able to eat. If you notice that you end up throwing groceries away each week, purchasing less groceries would eliminate waste and allow you to donate the savings to those in need.
Check back next week when we will be talking about Thanksgiving and the Eucharist. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
Peace and Joy, Lyn
