OCTOBER 29th, 2021

To the Faithful of the Reformed Catholic Church and all People of Goodwill:

We will be celebrating a variety of holidays and special events in the United States during the month of November. In addition to marking the Church’s celebration of All Saints Day, November 1st is the first day of a month-long celebration of Native Americans and Native Alaskans. The Native Americans and Native Alaskans and other indigenous people of our country have a remarkable history that predates the arrival of the Europeans and the Christian religion. November is a time to learn and rejoice in their varied, diverse and rich culture, histories and traditions. We should appreciate the great contributions that they have made. It is even more important to celebrate this month as the Indigenous people of the world help remind us all of our responsibility to care for all of God’s creation. Let us take the time to celebrate them and learn from them.

As we move through our celebrations this month, let us not forget our veterans of the Armed Forces on November 11th. We owe so much to our veterans for our freedoms. Our veterans, those drafted as well as those who volunteered, chose to serve their country in the defense of our freedoms. These include those indigenous people who fought for our country and the lands of their ancestors. We owe a great deal to the Eskimo Scouts, the Navajo Code talkers, and all who served. We honor them and thank those who are members of the Church as well as those we meet and encounter in our daily lives. Let us pray for them in a special way this November 11th.

Finally, there is Thanksgiving Day. The third Thursday of November was declared a federal holiday by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 as a day set aside to express our gratitude. While we who follow Christ are called to give thanks every day, Thanksgiving Day invites us to deeper reflection on our many blessings. It also calls us to consider ways to share our gratitude with those around us who may be broken or in need. We encourage all Americans to take the time this month, and especially on Thanksgiving Day, to give thanks to those in our lives who are important and make our lives more complete. Let us also thank God for all the people, things and beauty that surround us on a daily basis.

Thank you for keeping the faith during these challenging times.  Have a blessed month of November!

The Bishops & Board of Directors of the Reformed Catholic Church
Say each prayer as if it is your very last conversation with God and live each day as your last day to glorify God by your actions and words.”
