Thanksgiving at Blackfriars

Friday, November 28, 2008
Each year, the community of Blackfriars in Oxford celebrates Thanksgiving with students of the Hall and Studium many of whom are American.

Thanksgiving is a time for family and reunions, and it was wonderful to see two of our former Hall students from last year who chose to spend the holiday with us.

Above, fr David Sanders OP, who is Dean of the Hall, celebrates with one of our new students. Thanksgiving is a chance for us to celebrate together and to give thanks to God for His providential care.

fr Gregory Murphy OP carves one of the four turkeys, and the tables are laden with dishes prepared by the students.

"Every joy and suffering, every event and need can become the matter for thanksgiving which, sharing in that of Christ, should fill one's whole life: 'Give thanks in all circumstances' (1 Thess 5:18)" - Catechism of the Catholic Church §2648.

Lawrence Lew OP
