As our US Bishops wrote in their document, A Jubilee for Workers: Challenges and Opportunities for the New Millennium: ―It is worth remembering on Labor Day… that a person is more valuable for what she or he is then for what they have, for the work they do rather than for what they possess. We must join together… to build a society that respects each person and their work. The Marriage and Family Life Office encourages you to talk with your children about how work gives witness to our faith, how each of us can make the world a better place by who we are and what we do, and how all that we do can manifest the love of God. Spend some time reflecting on how you bring holiness and wholeness to the work you do.  Lord, let our work be a source of joy to our family and a song of praise to you. Amen



The Marriage and Family Life Office reminds you that Sunday, September 11 is Grandparents Day. In our grandparents we have sensed and felt the thread of history and the treasure of tradition that lies within our families. May they be blessed for their hard work and faith, which are their legacy. We pray that those who guided our early steps and called forth our talents be richly rewarded by God, our Divine Parent.


“MOM, DAD…I THINK GOD MAY BE CALLING ME”…. How do you respond to that?
