Thanksgiving and Appreciation

…always and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father. Ephesians 5:20

Just a few weeks away is Thanksgiving, the perfect time to thank those who faithfully serve all year—our priests and pastors. The Printery House now offers a selection of Thanksgiving cards to show appreciation to your priest or pastor. A handwritten card is a thoughtful way to express gratitude.

Golden Season of Gratitude

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20

It’s the middle of October and it’s time to begin thinking about Thanksgiving. This golden season of gratitude is always a great time to count your blessings. But as children of God, thankfulness is not confined to a day or season, it is an attitude that we should have every day.

Choosing an “attitude of gratitude” honors God. Try keeping a gratitude journal and in it write 3 things for which you are grateful. This is a great exercise to do just before you go to bed at night; you’ll be amazed how reflecting on your blessings will transform your life. A grateful heart sees each day as a gift from God.

The Printery House offers a gratitude journal,prayer journal as well as many Thanksgiving cards, one featuring a prayer written by one of the monks of Conception Abbey.(CB10016), an inspiring prayer for all year round.


Often we hear of a prayer request at church, Bible study, via social media or email and we pray for that person at that time. Often, we may forget to pray again when we get busy with our daily routine, but God tells us to pray continuously.

The Printery House offers a choice of two PrayerBowls that are perfect for helping us focus on prayer. Using the PrayerCard starters, write the name of the person or person in need of prayers. Collect all of your prayer intentions in your PrayerBowl. Then daily find time with the Lord to lift up all those in the PrayerBowl.

The Celeste PrayerBowl (G2957) will quickly become treasured in your home or makes a perfect gift. With its intricate cross, gold-scalloped edge, and five hand-applied Swarovski Crystals, this PrayerBowl is both elegant and graceful. Romans 12:12 “Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfast in prayer” scrolls around the delicate edges our signature bowl. A bundle of Prayer Cards is included.

The soothing colors found on the Angie PrayerBowl (G2956) make it the perfect addition to home. The elegantly trimmed gold edge and hand-applied Swarovski Crystals complement the design of this charming bowl. The verse that halos the edge is Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” A bundle of Prayer Cards is included with each bowl.
