Today we have all enjoyed celebrating Father’s Day – blessed especially when we can celebrate this special day with our own father; or keep them close in our hearts and prayers if they spent the day in heaven with Our Father, Almighty God in heaven. Today was extra special as our parish family of Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church of Parnell lifted up our Pastor, Father Mark as he prepares to make his transition to his new parish in the Diocese of Grand Rapids and we all prepare to welcome our a parish leader, Father Tom. The common thru-thread of each of these Fathers is that they love generously. All these fathers inspire whole-life giving love to their children, and loved we are!
May all those part of the UPRISE movement continue to be inspired by ALL the Fathers in your life – – and learn and give your life-giving love to all you will meet in the coming week – in your home, in your community, to your friends, and even a stranger – UPRISE movement-makers are reimagining what it means to live Catholic, love generously! Thank you all Fathers!
