Mother's and Father's Day 2017
At The Sunday Mass we honor our fathers and mothers, both living and deceased, during the months of May and June. The names of all our donors and their mothers and fathers will be placed in our intentions and be remembered in our Mother’s and Father’s Day Masses. Your donation in their memory also helps to support the continuance of The Sunday Mass. Our parents are our first teachers in the faith. Join us in celebrating them during these special days.
God’s Blessings and Peace + The Sunday Mass
Prayer for Living Parents
O Loving God, you gave us the commandment to honor our father and mother. In your loving kindness hear my prayer for my parents. Give them long lives and keep them well in body, mind and spirit. Bless their labors; keep them always in your care. Bless them generously for their loving care for me. Grant that, through your grace, I may always be their support and comfort, and that, after our life together on earth, we may experience the joy together praising you forever. Amen
Prayer for Deceased Parents
O God of Great Love, you gave us the command to honor our father and mother. In your mercy have compassion on the souls of my father and mother, forgive them their trespasses, and hold them tenderly in your loving hands. We live in the hope that one day we meet as family again in the light of your everlasting Kingdom of joy. We make this prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen`
