The special day when we honor our fathers will soon be here. Please share the name of your father and the other special fathers, sons, brothers, nephews, and friends in your life, living or deceased, to include in our Father’s Day Novena of Masses beginning on June 9th and ending on Father’s Day.
Please take a moment to consider what fatherhood means in our mission communities — the fathers struggling to provide for their families, and those families struggling to get by without a father. When you see what life is like in the poor communities we serve, from inner cities and rural towns here in the U.S. to remote villages in Latin America, you quickly realize what an important role fathers play. And you see what a difference the generosity of good friends like you makes.
