Happy Thanksgiving from The Printery House

Happy Thanksgiving! As a gift to you from The Printery House, we share a beautiful Thanksgiving prayer, written by one of the Monks of Conception Abbey. You may want to pray this prayer with your family and friends at the Thanksgiving table. Some families enjoy the tradition of joining hands around the table and saying a prayer together. Then going around the table, each person shares what blessing she/he is particularly grateful for this past year…a new baby, new job, graduating, healing from an illness, being reunited with a friend, or another year of good health. Pausing to count blessings can set the tone for a year ahead, one lived in gratitude.


We count among our blessings, Lord,
the gifts you have given us this year:
the love of friends and family
to share in our abundance
and support us in our need,
peace in good times
and comfort in anxious times,
joy in our gains
and hope in our losses,
humble gratitude in our successes,
and patience in our failures.
Thanks be to you, O Lord.
Glory to you forever.



O give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever.

Psalm 136:1

Giving Thanks

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with the addition of this set of four colorful placemats with the message of love and gratitude. The sentiment on each placemat reads : Thanks for food, thanks for love, thanks to our Lord in heaven above. G2934

A beautiful cornucopia would make a striking centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. Inscribed on the banner is the prayer: “Bless us Oh Lord and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ our Lord. Amen.” G2267

And if you can not be with family or friends for Thanksgiving, send Thanksgiving cards to let loved ones know you’re thinking of them during this special holiday.CB10005

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.
