Serving and Celebrating Fathers Year Round
06/12/2012 by Monsignor Michael M. Boland

Fathers’ Day is a big occasion for families. On June 17, Dads and Granddads will become the center of attention and gratitude, celebrations and gifts, showered on them by their loving spouses and children. Children and grandchildren will be better behaved and present carefully selected gifts to their “Grandpa (Abuelo), Daddy (Papa), or Uncle (Tio)!”

In most families in the United States, Father’s Day is also a day for visiting or calling elderly friends and neighbors who may be alone, showing them how much we value them with our love and friendship.

I’m happy to say that, at Catholic Charities, every day is “Father’s Day!”—and has been for the 95 years of our existence!
