A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

I always count my blessings-starting with the piece of good fortune that landed me wonderful parents.   A good start in life is priceless, and I am so grateful for the riches I had growing up.  We are lucky when there is a love of life and of living that is instilled in us when we are young-that life affirmation will stick around.  Parents are the constants of our lives-we should always value the good things they have taught us through example.

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.

That is what my parents did-provide me with a good example-and I hope I have done the same for others. I take the lessons learned and try to apply those lessons every day.  This Mother's Day I will take just a little more time to reflect on how my mother showed her constant love through honest and nurturing example. Join me and the Salvatorian family and thank your Mother, Grandmother, Aunt or other woman who helped you in life by sharing prayer and celebration.

Beginning Mother's Day, May 10, Salvatorians will celebrate a special Mother's Day Novena of Masses. Let us include your intentions in these nine days of prayer devoted to your mother. You might also include grandmothers, aunts, sisters, friends, beloved teachers and neighbors who have in many ways given you that unconditional love that helped mold you into who you are.  And don't forget to share with me your own personal intentions. We, the Salvatorians, will consider it a privilege to pray with you to honor the wonderful women who are so important in your life.

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

Because the Salvatorian Fathers and Brothers have a special devotion to the Blessed Mother Mary, the Mother's Day Novena is special to us.   Know how blessed you are to experience Mary's love through the love given you by your own Mother. Honor your mother or a beloved woman in your life with the gift of a Salvatorian Mother's Day Novena of Masses.  We have a beautiful Mass card for you to send to your Mother or another remarkable woman in your life. With Mary on our side and the love of our own mothers we really can't go wrong.

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




P.S. Please take a minute to look at our Father's Day Mass card. We will happily send you cards to use to remember your father, grandfather, husband, brother or friend in our Father's Day Novena of Masses starting June 21, honoring St. Joseph, Patron of Families.

Thank you for visiting our website. Take a minute to learn more about the Salvatorian community. We are delighted to have the opportunity to share the love and mercy of our Savior with you, your friends, and your family.
