A father is a man who loves without cost to his children and tries to raise them to be fully human creatures with the abilities to make a difference in our world. Some fathers are successful, some are not. However, almost all try their best. This Father's Day, let your dad know that you appreciate all his efforts. Strength--Your strength in helping me to tell right from wrong was a great gift. Honor--You taught me that to honor myself was a way to honor the God who made me. Faith--Thanks Dad for having faith in me, when I was not sure I had faith in myself. Love--You loved me even when I did not love myself. For that I am grateful.

Contact Bill Nagle with any questions. c 203-570-2593, email: Defending Our Religious Liberty At the annual Conference of the Academy of Catholic Theologians, Archbishop William E. Lori, asserted that religious institutions such as parishes, schools, and charities can no longer pretend that these are ordinary times. They must be robust in their Catholic identity and missionary zeal. He says when parishes lose their evangelizing edge or schools and charities become too much like their secular counterparts, we run the risk of surrendering, bit by bit, our religious freedom. He advises us all to build bridges, reach out in friendship to those we disagree with, but in the process let us not forget or surrender who we are. That is why our parishes and all our institutions need to undergo what Pope Francis calls “a missionary conversion.” Let us pray that the revised health care mandate reinstates religious freedom.

St. Gabriel Men’s Prayer Group meets in the Church on Saturday mornings at 7AM. For more information please contact Bill Nagle at 203-570-2593 or
