Bishop Jake's Thanksgiving Message

 Hate, Love and Thanksgiving

The Nazis imprisoned my mother in one of the lesser-known concentration camps. Mauthausen was located about 12 miles from her home, Linz, Austria. More people are familiar with camps like Auschwitz, Dachau, and Treblinka, but Mauthausen and its nearly 100 subcamps was one of the largest labor camps of the Nazi Regime.

Engagement party! My house: 79 Quail Ridge Dr., 6 - 8 p.m. Friday. Dinner will be grilled pork chops, veggies and corn on the cob, with ice cream for dessert.

Go east of campus on Desiard St., which becomes Hwy 139. When you come to the flashing yellow light with a Chevron station on the corner about 6-8 miles east of town, that's Hwy 594. Turn right, go one long block, turn left onto Walker Road, go one long block and turn right onto Quail Ridge Dr. You'll go through a stop sign and then my house is on the left about the third house past the stop sign. Mottled brown brick with a reddish roof and a black Honda CR-V in the carport.
