A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

My father was a man who always expected fair, honest and decent behavior from himself and others. He just believed that living a good honest life was an expectation.  He had values that may be called old-fashioned today, but having principles make us all better people.  Even when he held views that might not be easy or popular he never wavered from the path he thought was right.  I have tried to keep on the same path he followed and if I start to stray I stop and remember his moral strength and I usually get back on track.

Fr. Jordan said:
"Don't be people who are blown back and forth by every wind like a reed, but be firm and head straight to your goal."

I am going to say that that is what my Father did. I know you have men in your lives who have or had that strength of character. The Salvatorians honor the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and dear friends who have had the moral fiber to set us straight to our goals!

Beginning this Father's Day, June 18, 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 the step-father of our Savior, St. Joseph faced many storms with great love, wisdom and strength.  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 eager to remember other men you know who are fathers and/or spiritual guides to you or other loved ones at this Novena of Masses.  Be sure to send me the names of those you wish to honor by June 18, so that we may include them in our prayers.

To request one or more Father's Day Novena cards to send to your own father and/or other treasured men in your life, please click on the image of the Father's Day card and place your order online or call 1-800-254-4902.

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.
