A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

"Difficulties increase courage if a person has the conviction that they must be overcome at any price."
- Fr Francis Jordan

These words from Father Jordan remind me of the promise that St Joseph made to take on the role of earthly father to our Savior. Boy that really took a great deal of courage.  I see that courage in my father as he made the commitment to his family.  He, like other fathers, put his own problems aside and concentrated on providing guidance, wisdom and love to his family.  My father relied on his strong Catholic faith, and that allowed him to find his inner strength to challenge the difficulties of life.  I love that we have a day to honor his memory and to thank the many men who steer their loved ones safely through life.

Beginning this Father's Day, June 17, Salvatorians will honor fathers by celebrating a special Father's Day Novena. We dedicate this Novena in honor of St Joseph, Patron of Families.  As we remember St Joseph, I invite you to send me the name of your dear father - whether living or deceased - so together we can remember your father in these nine days of Masses and prayers.

Please send me your father's name either online, by mail or call 1-800-254-4902. We are also excited to remember other men you know who are fathers and/or spiritual guides to you or your loved ones at the Novena of Masses.  Be sure to send me the names of those you wish to honor by June 17, so that we may include them in our prayers.

May you and those dear to you be blessed in a real and special way this Father's Day, confident in the love our Heavenly Father holds for us all.
