Blessing to All Fathers on Father's Day: “Heavenly Father, we ask you to bless our earthly fathers for the many times they reflected the love, strength, generosity, wisdom and mercy that you exemplify in your relationship with us, your children. We honor our fathers for putting our needs above their own convenience and comfort, for teaching us courage and determination in the face of adversity, for challenging us to move beyond our self-limiting boundaries, and for modeling the qualities that would turn us into responsible, principled, caring adults. Not all our fathers lived up to these ideals. Give them grace to acknowledge and learn from their mistakes. Give us the grace to extend to them the same forgiveness that you offer us all. We pray that our fathers who have passed into the next life have been welcomed into your loving embrace, and that our family will one day be reunited in your heavenly kingdom, we pray in your Most Holy Name. Amen.” (Tony Rossi)

Work Projects Around OLV This Summer: Several major and minor projects will be happening this summer at OLV: a new main entrance to the school (a safety and ADA upgrade), a new roof for the school, a new AC system for Hess, “bricking” the church/rectory garden, repair of rectory front steps, and moving the statue of Our Lady of Victory to one of the front niches (a fire safety issue).
