Thanks & Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love 
and his wonderful deeds for humankind,
for he satisfies the thirsty and 
fills the hungry with good things.
-Psalm 107:8-9

Dear Members and Friends of the Conference, 

As we gather around Thanksgiving tables this year and give thanks for God's abundant blessings, we here at the RFC are deeply grateful for the many ways you enable and strengthen our work at the Conference.

To all our member communities, partners and collaborators, and those who have gifted the RFC with financial support, resources, time and wisdom: thank you!

It is only through the generosity of many that the RFC is able to engage religious communities with timely resources, services, and experiences that support our ministry as formators. Thank you for helping advance RFC's mission and respond to the emerging future of religious life.

Please know of our prayers and gratitude this Thanksgiving. May this time be one of thankful celebration for God's unfailing love and wonderful deeds.

In gratitude,

RFC Staff
