Due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, our Father’s Day Mass has been pre-recorded for you to watch in the safety of your own home where you may wish to gather with family to join us as we remember:

The men who have shown us kindness,
The men who have shown us courage,
The men who have shown us generosity,
The men who have shown us truth,
The men who have shown us compassion,
The men who have shown us faith,
The men who have shown us love

The men whom we love, and those we may not have loved ………..

 Father’s Day presents an opportunity for all of us to reflect on what fathers and fathering have meant in our lives:  biological fathers (living, dead or absent); step fathers, adoptive fathers, grandfathers, and siblings, uncles or other significant males who have been prepared to take on a fathering role in our lives.  By Dianne McKissock OAM (Read the full article here https://childhoodgrief.org.au/fathers-day/ )
