Meet our Confirmation Students!
This week: Victoria Smith
My name is Victoria Smith. I am in 11th grade, I am 17 years old. My mom’s name is Pat and my dad’s name is Robert. I have one sister and one brother. My activities I do are working at the Waterford and I run track and field. I want to be confirmed because I want to come closer with my faith. My Catholic faith to me means being respectful and taking time of of everything else you do and spend time praying. I see my future sharing my faith the people who don’t really know what faith is and how important it is.
A Thanksgiving Prayer
Good and gracious God,
You do all things well.
You make the sun and rain come,
nurturing the earth, making it
fertile and fruitful.
Through Your gift of creation and the
work of our hands,
we reap an abundant harvest.
We give You thanks for Your many
gifts that sustain us;
for health and home, dignified labor,
for family, friends, neighbors,
and those whom -- today -- we may
still consider enemies.
As we reflect in thanks this day,
may we remember those who lack
something we have.
May our gratitude move us to love,
serve, and give.
Together we rejoice in Your gifts,
and in Your abundant life!
