Father's Day Prayer

 

God our Father, you govern and protect your people and shepherd them with a father's love.You place a father in a family as a sign of your love, care, and constant protection.
May fathers everywhere be faithful to the example shown in the Scriptures: steadfast in love, forgiving transgressions, sustaining the family, caring for those in need.Give your wisdom to fathers that they may encourage and guide their children.Keep them healthy so they may support a family.
Guide every father with the Spirit of your love that they may grow in holiness and draw their family ever closer to you.
Amen.

 

Happy Fatherís Day!

Blessings to all Fathers, Grandfathers, Step-Fathers,

Godfathers and Fathers-To-Be!

THOUGHTSÖ..††

 

This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity.Having honored Jesus Christ throughout the Easter Season, and the Holy Spirit last Sunday on Pentecost, the feast brings it all together as we honor our triune God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.We worship one God who in the mystery of his divinity is somehow three persons while remaining only one God.God is a within himself a community of love, the Fatherís love for his only Son, the only Sonís love for the Father, and their mutual love which is the Holy Spirit.God is truly love, and he calls us to be pure love as well.May we all take up this challenge in our daily lives and thereby bring love into our world which so desperately needs it.May our Lady help us to remember this challenge to be love for the world.Mary, help of Christians, pray for us.

 

This weekend is also Fatherís Day.Our dads bring us love in a very unique way that compliments the love that our mothers give us.To all our dads we give thanks for the strength and commitment to taking care of us that you give us throughout life.May God richly reward all our Fathers this weekend.You deserve the attention guys!

 

This week most of the priests of the Archdiocese will be in Rochester from Monday until Thursday for our bi-annual priest assembly.Note the bulletin to see when daily mass might be replaced by Word and Communion services in our tri-parishes.Our summer Deacon Albert Wugaa will be leading those services when they are scheduled to replace a daily mass.Everyone try to be good while father is away!
