A Thank You Letter

December 15, 2011

When the song of the angels is stilled
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost, To heal the broken, To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner, To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among others, To make music in the heart.
Howard Thurman

Dear Parishioners,

This is the season of giving and we are so grateful for your wonderful gift of socks, gloves, tshirts and toiletries. These are wonderful treats for our guests . This is an acknowledgement of this donation to Lantern Light, Inc. and that you have received no goods or services in return for this donation. Thank you very much for your help in spreadingjoy and blessings to all of God’s people!

The cold weather is here. Our guests are enjoying the warm mittens and hats, the hot chocolate, and the other items that your generosity makes possible. We usually can’t make snowmen here but when the weather is in the 30 to 60 range it is cold to those who have to be out in it day and night. Their way of life is often difficult to imagine.

Our website, lanternIight.org , has been revamped and you can keep updated on our news and refer others to it to for information about Lantern Light. Do check it out!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
With gratitude and wishes of peace and joy,
The Presentation Sisters
