Thanksgiving 2008 at the Marian Scholasticate
by Br. Angelo Casimiro, MIC
This year, our brothers from Steubenville, Ohio (Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC; Fr. John Larson, MIC; and Br. Thaddaeus Lancton, MIC) joined us at the Marian Scholasticate in Washington, D.C., for Thanksgiving.
The celebration began the night before Thanksgiving with a delicious pre-Thanksgiving dinner made by our novices Steven Ybarra, Matthew Holladay, and Allen Alexander. After dinner, some of the brothers watched the "highly acclaimed" film, "Muppets in Space," which made Br. Andy Davy and Kermit T. Frog delightfully happy.
On Thanksgiving the following day, the community celebrated Holy Mass together and gave thanks for all of God's blessings. Afterward, we all headed over to have Thanksgiving dinner at the convent of the Oblate Sisters of the Most Holy Eucharist. Thanksgiving this year was a great time for brotherhood and community!
