Unfortunately, we often take our priests and their families for granted. We might forget that they are human just like the rest of us, not realizing the day–to–day sacrifices they make for the Church. Let’s remember to thank our clergy for their hard work and dedication on behalf of our church communities! Take some time as a family this month and plan a way to show appreciation for your parish priest and/or family. It could be as simple as writing a note thanking him for his leadership in your church or stopping by his office with a coffee and a few warm words of encourage- ment. And regardless of the month, we should regularly pray for our priests and their families!
