HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!...


The following reflection and Sunday's homily comes from Fr. Jonathan Kalisch, OP, national head of Knights of Columbus Chaplains [Excerpt]:  Every man -- even those who don’t have children of their own -- is called to fatherhood. His fatherhood consists of nurturing the vocations of those for whom the Lord has given him care and responsibility. In his recent apostolic exhortation on the call to holiness in today’s world, Gaudete et Exsultate (“Rejoice and Be Glad”), Pope Francis highlights the central importance of the grace of discernment which “seeks a glimpse of that unique and mysterious plan that God has for each of us” (170). A father plays a key role in showing his children the love of God the Father, through which they experience, on a supernatural level, the knowledge of the unrepeatability of their own unique lives. Thanks to those men who model true fatherhood in our lives!

Welcome to St. Martin de Porres Church

HEARTFELT GRATITUDE FROM THE SISTERS

Sister Pat Johnson and I send our heartfelt thanks for the beautiful Liturgy and Reception in our honor last Saturday evening: beginning with a complete surprise of beautiful corsages, designed by Fr. Nick, to front pew seats, to bringing up the gifts, and as part of the thanksgiving after Communion, hearing John McGovern sing our beautiful Dominican MAGNIFICAT. And finally, the Parish Blessing us at the end was so special. Our hearts are full of gratitude knowing we are so loved and appreciated.

A footnote regarding the corsages ordered by Fr. Nick - "the white teacup roses for purity and womanhood, three roses for the Holy Trinity, green buds and baby's breath for my Irish heritage, and black and white ribbons for the color of the Dominican habit. "What a guy!!!!! 


We so appreciated the Reception as well. We were met at the Hall with black and white balloons, our Dominican colors, then ushered into an elegant reception.

Thank you, Sister Pat Whalen, Mary Loria and Zora Dziurman, for organizing the event, to all those who helped, and all who attended and made everything so wonderful where Zora ever managed to collect those pictures, I'll never know. I can't think of a more welcoming Pastor, Staff, and Parishioners than all of you at St. Martin de Porres Parish. We leave for our "Final chapter" in Adrian with very fond memories; however, it is difficult leaving so many, many good friends. Thank you, again.

Sister Noreen and Sister Pat Johnson
