The mass exodus has begun. We do staff a break home for a few of the students who will stay here for the Thanksgiving holiday, but most of our students are leaving for a few days to enjoy time with their family. We have icy, wintry weather across the state, and to beat the approaching storm, many of our students went home last night. Most of our staff will get to enjoy some time with their families as well, thought I’m grateful for the ones who will check in on campus and make sure the heat, water and physical plant is running the way it should.
Later on today we’ll host the other SCJs who work on the Lower Brule & Crow Creek Reservations, and Fr. Mark and Fr. Gary from in town. Since they will have masses and parish celebrations tomorrow, today works out well for our Religious “family” to have a meal together and relax. May each of you reading this have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
