Give thanks to the Lord who is good.

God’s love is everlasting. 

 

For all good gifts, great and small, beautiful and awesome, seen and unseen,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For all life and all creation, for the grace and the abundance of generosity,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For the opportunity to witness, proclaim, invite and engage others in the Mission of Jesus,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For those who have gone before us and rest in God’s peace,

especially those who have bequested us in faith, hope, and love,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For people of all generations, from our civic elders to millennials and beyond,

whose hearts yearn to make the world a better place,

and whose eyes see everyone as brother and sister,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For those who are not afraid to see new visions and dream new dreams with us,

We thank you, Lord God.

 

For those who have gone before and those who will follow in advancing the mission of our institutions,

in advancing the Mission of Jesus,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For all that has been, is, and is yet to before all of us who are engaged in Catholic philanthropy,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For the gift of being part of the transformative miracle that flows from God’s own generous love,

We thank you, Lord God. 

 

For your Holy Spirit, who guides our steps and brings us gifts of faith and love,

We praise you, Lord God. 

 

For your Son Jesus Christ, for entrusting His Mission to us in hope and joy,

We thank and praise you. 

 

Eternal God, for all your goodness to us.

Indeed, we give thanks to the Lord, who is good. 

God’s love is everlasting.
