Just a “heads-up” for those of you who are grateful for the work your ministry leaders do. Clergy Appreciation Day is observed on the second Sunday in October. Clergy / Pastor Appreciation Day is traditionally a time set aside to recognize the work of ministers, pastors, and priests in the United States. This day of appreciation falls in National Clergy Month, which is observed annually each October. So, take a moment to make your gratitude known to those who minister in your community of faith.
