When Canisius’ Christ the King faith community learned that many students would remain on campus during the Thanksgiving break, they decided to offer both a family Mass and brunch for all.

With help from Gabby De Rocher, in Residence Life, an uplifting Mass was celebrated on Thanksgiving morning which drew people from campus, parish, alumni and even guests from John Carroll University in Cleveland.

During Mass, there was no offertory collection but each family brought packaged cookies for the Pete’s Pantry which were placed at the Altar. Brunch was funded and prepared by parishioners in the undercroft.

We were so happy that many of our international students participated, enjoyed the meal, took home lots of goodies and had good conversation with our parishioners.
