“Be still and know that I am God” - Psalm 46:10

Sixty years and counting – `til the end of my days O Lord. I will bless your name, Sing your praise, Give you thanks.

You have surrounded my table with a loving and supportive family,

With faithful and committed friends,

With a Dominican Family that has helped me grow spiritually and has been there in good days and has encouraged me in difficult days,

With a ministry that has helped me live out the Gospel message,

working together with many other committed companions serving the poor, taking in the orphans,

making the marginalized feel welcome and providing an oasis of love and hope for for those in need.

For all this – I bless You, praise You and give you thanks.
