  • Father's Day This Sunday we remember and honor in a special way all of our fathers, living and deceased. We pray that God’s abundant blessings may reward them for the gift of life that they have shared with us. 

    God our Father, we give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old. We pray:

    For young fathers, newly embracing their vocations - May they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice.

    For fathers around the world whose children are lost and suffering - May they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow.

    For men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice.

    We remember fathers, grandfathers, and great grandfathers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and have nourished us with their love. Amen.
