We invite you to join us Thanksgiving Day for our Community Thanksgiving Dinner, which is being hosted by our Confirmation Students! This is a free community meal (free-will donations if you are able) with dine-in or take out options available. All meal donations will support Common Cup Ministries and/or the McLeod County Food Shelf. We will be offering an option for meal delivery and ask that you please pre-order your meal by November 24th, no later than 11:00 AM. To make these arrangements you can contact Donna at 320-587-6507. While not required, you may also schedule a pick-up time for your meal. We are delighted to continue this tradition and have this opportunity to provide this free Thanksgiving meal to our community.
We want to be a blessing and understand that this can be a very difficult time for those individuals who may not have the opportunity to spend this holiday with family and friends. You are never alone in our community. All are welcome to attend. We look forward to celebrating with you Thanksgiving Day at 11:00 AM!

VOLUNTEERS Are Needed
We are blessed to have our parishioners willing to donate financially as well as their time to help us provide this Community Meal. If this is something you or your organization would like to support, we are seeking volunteers, financial donations, and food donations.
- PRAYERS: Please pray we are able to reach those in need and lonely this Thanksgiving and that they are well provided for at the meal, both in body and soul. Please also pray for those serving the meal.
- Financial donations can be sent into the parish office. Please put Thanksgiving Meal in the memo line. All funds received over and above the cost of serving the meal will be donated to a local non-profit organization (McLeod County Food Shelf or Common Cup).
- Food donations such as turkeys (20 lbs), cans of green beans (100 oz.), pies, gravy, cans of cranberry sauce, beverages such as water, milk, juice, etc. Gift cards to grocery stores in Hutchinson would be appreciated (if you purchase through Scrip we will gain an added benefit!). Stickers are found in the back of the church and drop off times are Wednesdays 5:30-7:30 in the cafeteria and Sundays 8:30 to 10:30 in the cafeteria.
- Volunteers!!! We have slots for volunteers from Tuesday through Thursday, Thanksgiving Day from potato peelers to setting up chairs to cleaning up the gym. Find a time that works for you!! Sign ups will be after Masses this weekend.
