Happy Father's Day Weekend!
This weekend we pause to give thanks for the blessing of fatherhood. As with Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is a day of mixed emotions. It is a happy day for all who were or are blessed with the gift of a kind and loving father. But even in this fortunate situation, there is pain for those who recently lost their fathers. For sons and daughters who have a poor relationship with their father, this is a painful day. For fathers whose children have lost their way, this is a painful day. Having said that, we give thanks today for all dedicated fathers, not perfect, but who really work hard at being good fathers.
We are excited to begin celebrating First Holy Communion with our youth and their families this weekend. These celebrations were originally scheduled for April and the beginning of May, so we are looking forward to welcoming more to the Table of the Lord. As is our tradition, we will be reserving the two sections in front of the altar during the Saturday 4:30 Vigil Mass and the Sunday 9:30 am Mass. We will also have a student celebrating at the 11:30 am Mass. Please hold these families in your prayers and join in our celebrations!
