Fathers’ Day

This year we need to find even more creative ways to thank those who are fathers in our lives. 

Consider lighting a candle and saying a prayer of thanks for those fathers who have died.

Send a card, make a phone call, or set up some time to chat through Facetime or Zoom with the dads you are currently physically distant from.

If there is a dad in your household, surprise him by decorating his chair, making a favourite food, or taking time to sit down a share a drink and conversation.  After all, we love our fathers all year, but it is a good reminder on this day to remember to say “I love you”.
