On June 23rd, our parish participates in the Peter’s Pence Collection for the works of the Holy Father. Once each year, the Holy Father asks us to help him provide for our neediest brothers and sisters throughout the world – those who suffer due to war, oppression, and natural disasters. We are summoned to be a people who listen with our hearts, lend a helping hand, and build a better world. Let us respond by joining the Holy Father in this act of justice and kindness. I ask for your prayers for the Holy Father and for your generous gifts to this special appeal. Thank you.
Cor Unum et Anima Una – “One Heart, One Spirit.” Make a deeper connection with the Lord and your CRHP sisters at Cor Unum. If you have previously attended and hosted a CRHP weekend, and are looking for an opportunity to extend your CRHP experience, then join us at the Neumann Center on Monday, July 1st, from 7-9 P.M. Please RSVP at CorUnumBST@yahoo.com or contact Jen Milam at 443-2721 with any questions.
Blessed are the fathers who have learned to laugh, for it is the
music of the child’s world.
Blessed are the fathers who refuse to compare their children with
others, for precious unto each is the rhythm of his own growth.
Blessed are the fathers who understand the goodness of time, for
they make it not a sword that kills growth, but a shield to guide
Blessed are the fathers who can say “no” without anger, for
comforting to the child is a security of a firm decision.
Blessed are the fathers who accept the awkwardness of their
growing children, letting each child grow at his/her own pace.
Blessed are the fathers who are teachable, for knowledge brings
understanding and understanding brings love.
Blessed are the fathers who love their children in the midst of a
hostile world, for love is the greatest gift of all.
Blessed are fathers today on their special day and every day as they
fulfill the real needs of their children with love and understanding.
