Question of the Week
question mark
Question of the Week: Due to Thanksgiving break, we will not have a question this week.
Last Week's Answer: The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, pray, network, and advocate together. It is a place where people are empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked.

Last Week's Winner: Helen Schultz!

Send your answer to Cindy Schmersal by 9:00am on Wednesday.  Of those students who respond, one will be chosen at random to receive a free (and delicious!) twister from the Pub.  The winner will be announced in the following week's bulletin.


Last week's answer to the question of deuterocanonical books requires some clarification.  Here is a resource where you learn more about the canon and the dueterocanonical books.

Prayer for this time of Thanksgiving

Thank you God for who I am,

(Pause to consider the uniqueness and beauty of your person: the gifts you have to offer, your goodness)

Thank you for You,

(Pause to consider God: God's presence in and work through your life, God's love)

For all living beings,

For the love I feel that makes me live

Every moment of my life with great joy,

Helping me bring joy

To all that my life touches.


Thank you God for the opportunities I have every day

To express the best I have in me,

(Pause to consider "the best in you.")

For being able to be of service to every person I meet.

(Pause to consider how you may use these gifts to the benefit of all you will encounter today.)


Thank you God for the perfect peace I feel inside,

Tranquility, serenity, Divine Quietness.

Thank you for everything I learn

From all I experience and all I create every day.


Thank you God for inspiring me,

For helping me create Heaven on Earth

Now, and now, and now,

And in every moment I think, speak and act.


Thank you God

For being who I am.

Thank you,

Thank you,

Thank you.
