A Message of Thanksgiving

A Thanksgiving message from Head of School Rene Gavic:

"Give me one more thing, O Lord: a grateful heart." Saint Francis de Sales

Gratitude is at the heart of Salesian Spirituality -- living in the present moment and the ability to be thankful for all that God has given us. During this season of gratitude, I am especially mindful of the abundant generosity of the Visitation community. A most recent example is the extraordinary day of giving last Wednesday on Vis Give Day where Visitation raised $525,539 to support our mission of providing quality education with a foundation of Salesian Spirituality.

Around school, our students' are busy collecting food for the annual Campus Ministry Thanksgiving food drive -- students will personally deliver a holiday meal and additional groceries to 125 families in North Minneapolis. Each and everyday, I am blessed to witness the multiple ways this learning community serves God and one another.

Thank you for your inspiring support and generosity. Abundant blessings to you and your loved ones this Thanksgiving.
