A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

I am finding out that as I am spending more time on my own that there are wonderful memories that are keeping me company.  I really savor the lovely recollections of my parents.   A good start in life is priceless, and I am so grateful for the richest of family love I had growing up.  My father especially made me feel safe and loved.  He was a man filled with faith and joy, lucky me!

Fr Jordan wrote: Among all the means for carrying out the apostolate effectively, example is the most important.  Each one can and should give good example.

We are lucky when love of life and of living is instilled in us when we are young - that life affirmation will stick with us always.  That is what my parents did, provide me a good example, and I hope I have done the same for others.  My father's strong faith - that with God's help - things would turn well was a constant that helped shape my life.  On Father's Day I always say extra prayers to honor his memory. And you know this year especially I can feel his guidance and love.  There are so many fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and friends who steer loved ones safely through life and they are continually in my prayers and I hope in yours.

Beginning this Father's Day, June 21, Salvatorians will honor fathers by celebrating a special Father's Day Novena. This Novena in honor of St Joseph, Patron of Familie,s gives us the time to thank our fathers and all the great men who have helped raise 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.

You may send intentions to me either online, by mail or by calling 1-800-254-4902. Please be sure to include your dear father's name, living or departed, as well as the names of any others for whom you want to pray.

May our loving Savior guide you and smile upon you and those you love most on this Father's Day and each day of your life.

God of Salvatorian,
We turn to you with a prayer for protection and healing

Help those who are sick.
