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. My father's strong faith-that with God's help-things would turn out for the best was the constant that helped shape my life. His strong Catholic faith allowed him to provide guidance, wisdom and love to us, and enabled him to carry his entire family through some pretty tough times. On Father's Day I honor his memory and thank those countless men who steer their loved ones safely through life.

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 Families 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 names 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 online, by mail or call 1-800-254-4902 toll free. 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 and His Blessed Mother smile upon you and those you love most on Father's Day and each day of your life.




P.S. Please take a minute to look at our Father's Day Mass card. We can 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.
