Bishop Christian and the parish

staff wish all the fathers of our

parish community a blessed Father’s Day!


Heavenly Father,

you entrusted your Son Jesus, the child of Mary, to the care of Joseph, an earthly father. Bless all fathers as they care for their families. Give them strength and wisdom, tenderness and patience; support them in the work they have to do, protecting those who look to them, as we look to you for love and salvation, through Jesus Christ our rock and  defender. 

Amen.

Congratulations to all the students in our parish who are

graduating from college, high school, middle school and

grade school! May God bless them and guide them as

they pursue future endeavors. This is an

accomplishment to remember and to celebrate!

Loving God, we thank you for all who graduate from grade

school, middle school, high school and college this time of

the year. You have blessed them during their years in school

with wisdom, friendships, and skills. You continue to

challenge them to make this world a better place because of

their education.

Help them to look forward to their next steps: continuing in

their education or entering the work world. Particularly help

those who are seeking employment to find a job suitable to

their education.

Give them faith and a sense of purpose in their next steps.

Show them how to serve others in effective ways.

And may they always be aware in everything they do that

they will find fulfillment in doing your will, that you will be

with them always, and that you will bring to completion the

good work you have begun in them.

Amen.

Living the Liturgy at Home

PRAYER


Lord our God, you sent your Son into the world to live with us as one of us, to heal, to teach, to sanctify, and to proclaim the Good News of the coming of the Kingdom. Help us to live our Baptism to the full and to find ways to do what Jesus did: to bring joy and life wherever we go, to lift up the suffering, and to tell other people about the new life Jesus has brought us. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.


CONVERSATION QUESTIONS


The meaning of parables is never too obvious, and the purpose of parables is really to challenge us to think more deeply about the issues. What did the parable of the mustard seed spark in you? What are we called to do to build God’s Kingdom on earth?


FAITH IN ACTION


Have your child offer one dollar in the collection basket at Mass. Compare the growth of a seed to the results of the offertory collection. What does one dollar’s worth of food mean for a hungry child? What does a Bible mean to a family in a refugee camp or to a lonely traveler? What does the visit of one minister of care mean to a homebound parishioner who received Holy Communion? Encourage your family to make a difference in the world with just one small action. We are called to bear fruit for God’s Kingdom.


DID YOU KNOW?


. . . . that St. Thérèse of Lisieux is known for her “little way”? During her life she constantly looked for “little ways” to share Christ’s love with her family and the sisters in her community. She believed that acting with love in small ways helps us grow in holiness.

What so ever you do........

Thank you for joining with the EDGE Program in a special outreach project for the youth in Nashua who have

aged out of the foster care system.



New Requests as of 5/1/24:


Due to the fact that Stepping Stones, a day drop in shelter for the homeless youth of Nashua, abruptly closed, the youth are urgently need of gift cards to Dunkin, Wendy’s, Subway or any other downtown restaurants. This gives them the opportunity to have a place to find shelter even if it is for an hour or so.  You may drop off your gift card donations at the parish office.


Thank you and God bless you!
