What experiences have moved you in a positive way? For what are you thankful this year? Please take a moment to reflect on these questions and answer the response below with a word or short phrase.

A Thanksgiving Blessing
Dear Central Catholic Family,
Everything God has created is good, and everyone He brings into our lives is a treasure.
We want you to know that sharing life’s blessings with you makes the world more beautiful and the heart more grateful.
At this time of Thanksgiving our thoughts turn gratefully to you with warm appreciation.
