Happy Father’s Day!

A Message from Father Nathan

 

Father’s Day

My humble prayers to you. I cannot imagine that I have spent already one whole year here at this wonderful parish.

Time past just like that. I reach here on 06/15/19 evening. The whole year is a time of blessings, graceful, and learning…

You, my friends, are wonderful. As I very many times repeat, I love to be here. As we move into the church, I get the sense that our people are coming out of their fear, which is good. We will still be more careful in handling the disinfection of the church, parish hall, and all the facilities.

Please help me as well. If you have any suggestions, observations, or comments please let me know. I am open to that. Our esteemed Archdiocese is also concerned about the parishes. Let us pray that we will get over this situation soon and that normalcy will be back.

This week we are going to celebrate Father’s Day. It is a day of honoring fatherhood and paternal bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. None of us start and move our life from zero. We are influenced by very many people, their thoughts and actions do influence us. No doubt that the influence of our fathers are always incredible in our lives.

As we celebrate Father’s Day, let us remember and pray for our fathers both living and dead. Let us thank the Lord for the persons they are. Let us appreciate their influence on our lives.

It’s the day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and families, and ways.. both big and small—they lift children to achieve dreams thought beyond reach.

May God bless our fathers.

FATHER’S DAY PRAYER

God, our Father

Bless these men,

that they may find strength as fathers.

Let the example of their faith and love shine forth

Grant that we, their sons and daughters

may honor them always

with a spirit of profound respect.

Amen.

May God Bless You All.

Please Stay Safe and healthy!
Ever at your service.
– With lots of love and blessing,

What is the Sacrament of Confession? Why do we need confession? What are the benefits of going to confession? The Sacrament of Confession is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God, our neighbors, and the Church.

Ash Wednesday | The Beginning of Lent
“Repent and believe in the Gospel” is the captivating sentence as we begin the holy season of Lent. For any Roman Catholic Church, the suffering the death of Christ is the mystery of our faith. Our faith revolves around this.

Thoughts on healing a broken heart… Thank you for your love and care. It’s the greatest and warming feeling that one is being loved, we hear that Christ longed for this acceptance from His people when he lived here in His time.
