Receiving and perceiving the blessings of God was the topic of the reflection presented by Father Rich Boever at this year’s community Thanksgiving service. The prayer service was held on Wednesday, November 18 at the Parish of St. Michael the Archangel. Members from a variety of local churches gathered together at the Catholic church in Steelville for the annual service sponsored by the ministerial alliance.
Fr. Boever offered the reflection based on the gospel reading from Luke 17:11-19, which tells the story of Jesus Christ’s healing of the ten lepers. Only one returned to give thanks for the blessing.
