Grace and peace to you Jesus Christ.
Praise be to our Father who is in heaven who have blessed us in the heavenly realms with spiritual blessings in Christ.
I feel humbled to write to say thank you for the support you have given me at the Church Cleanup day. Dear brothers and sister; You matter. You make a difference. Your willingness to share both your time and your talent by volunteering with Guardian Angel Church cleanup says a lot about each of you as a Parish Community member. Your willingness to give selflessly to help others speaks to both your strength and the quality of your character.
When you volunteer, you are making a commitment to share that most precious of resources – your time – to make life better for those who are in need. The fruits of your labors make a tangible impact, of course, but perhaps it is the fact that you are willing to share your time and talent to lend a helping hand and to show kindness and caring that makes the greatest difference in the lives of the individuals and the Parish Community.
While I know that you choose to volunteer selflessly and without expectation of being recognized or rewarded, today I wish to do just that. I want to let you know just how much your dedication is appreciated. Whether you are a long-time volunteer or if you got involved recently, and regardless of how many hours you choose to give, it’s important for you to know that what you do makes a difference.
Words cannot adequately express the gratitude that I, and the Parish community wish to convey. Please know that your volunteerism is recognized, appreciated, valued and cherished. We thank you and look forward to continuing to work with you in the future. May God bless you and your family
