beloved children of the father
children of the father

From the moment of our creation,
God the Father has filled us with His unconditional Love.

Our Heavenly Father sacrificed His only Son
so that you could spend eternity with Him.

There is peace in the arms of God the Father,
whose love knows no limits.

Experience the Gift of Your Heavenly Family!

As Beloved Children of the Father, we have been gifted with a most magnificent Holy Family. This year, we will strive to grow in holiness with each perfect member of our Heavenly Family—growing ever closer to God, our Father, and deepening our understanding of His never-ending love for us. Together, we will reflect on the countless gifts and graces that the Father bestows upon His Beloved Children through Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. As the year progresses, our parish family will have the opportunity to turn our minds and hearts to each member of the Holy Family in turn through additional programs and events, strengthening our relationship with each as well as our appreciation of the Father’s love for us.

Join us in our journey as Beloved Children of the Father, gifted with the saving grace and protection of our Heavenly Family!

“We love because He first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19
