Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day from the Marianist Community at St. Anthony Parish in Wailuku, Maui!

Dear Fathers, Grandfathers, Godfathers, and all those who have been fathers to us:

Happy Father’s Day! And many blessings to you!

Blessed are You, Lord and Father of all life, who has given to us the gift of the father in our families.

Today, we will honor him, and we thank You for the numerous good things that are ours because of him.

His love for us has been a sign of Your divine affection and a sharing in Your holy love.

Bless our fathers this day with Your strength O Holy God, that they may continue to be a sign of your presence and a priestly parent to our families.

May we, who have the honor of bearing his father’s name, do so with great pride.

And may we, the members of his family, assist him in his holy duties as a parent with respect, our obedience and our deep affection.

Bless our fathers, Lord, with happiness and good health, with peace and good fortune so that they who have shared their very life with us may live forever with You, his loving and gracious heavenly Father.

And this blessing and all graces, we pray, descend upon the fathers of our families here at St. Anthony.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Fr. Roland Bunda
Pastor, St. Anthony of Padua Maui

Father's Day Blessings from Fr. Roland
