Fathers, Summer and Giving Thanks

 

From the Pastor’s Desk

Dear Parishioners,
I'd like to begin by wishing Happy Father’s Day to all of our fathers, grandfathers and godfathers. It's wonderful to have a day set aside where we can acknowledge our fathers and thank them for all they do for us. 

It's also the beginning of summer! The weather is getting warmer and we prepare for whatever vacation we may take. When we look at the beauty of nature as we stand outside on a summer day, we can truly see the loving Hand of God.

This is a time we can show our thanks to God. As we celebrate Father’s Day, we can thank God for our fathers and for all they've done for us and our families. We can also ask God to continue to watch over our fathers and give them His Blessing.

We can also thank God for His gift of nature. Maybe some of us will go to the beach this summer. We can recognize God as we look out at the ocean and see the sun shine on the horizon. In any way we enjoy the outdoors, we're making the most of the gifts God has given us. 

At this beautiful time of year, we can see how God is present to us. Let's be sure to thank God for all of His gifts. In a special way today, let's ask for God's Blessing on all of our fathers, grandfathers and godfathers.

 

Sincerely in Christ,
Father Dominick
