Happy Father’s Day from YCDSB!

“God our Father, We give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old.

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation; may they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family, and faith in joy and sacrifice.

We pray for all fathers, especially our own, may they grow in love and wisdom as they accompany their children through triumphs and trials. We pray for fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering.

We pray 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 nourish us with their love.
