1 June 21, 2015 The Parishes of Page 1 Father s Day The American experience of Father s Day is less than 100 years old and is believed to be initiated by Sonora Smart Dodd in Spokane Washington. While sitting in church one day listening to a Mother s Day sermon, she wanted to designate a day to honor her dad. William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran, singlehandedly raised his six children after the mother died in childbirth. Sonora convinced the mayor to initiate a holiday in June honoring Fathers. The date was June 19 th, In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the holiday to strengthen the bond between Father s and their children and to impress upon them the full measure of their obligations. In 1966 President Lyndon B. Johnson made the first presidential proclamation honoring Father s on the third Sunday of June. But it was President Richard Nixon who in 1972 signed it into public law making it a permanent holiday. The following prayers can be used in your home to bless your fathers. God our Father, you are the giver of all life, human and divine. Bless our father. May he be the best of teachers for his children, bearing witness to the faith by what he says and does, in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen. Fr. Phil Farewell On this day when we honor fathers for their love and service to their children, we also take this opportunity to honor Fr. Phil who has been a teacher, a father and a friend to all of us in the parish. I remember when Fr. Phil first moved here, it was outside the normal sequence, and Fr. John Nedumcheril had not yet moved out. Fr. Phil s transition from St. Lawrence to St. Augustine took longer than expected, but he finally made the rectory his home. This is a good analogy for us. Over time Fr. Phil moved into our hearts and made them his home. From home visits and hospitals to the playground at St. Augustine, Fr. Phil has left his mark on the hearts and minds the people of our parishes. He is now ready to take on pastoring his own parish of St. Michael the Archangel in Monroe. We have one more week with him and then we will have to say goodbye and God s speed. We wish him the best in all that he does and many blessings. J u n e 2 1, Holy Family & St. Augustine Parish families are invited to a Farewell Open House for Father Phil Ching Sunday, June 21, 2015 at St. Augustine Parish Hall 12:00 Noon to 4:00 p.m. A buffet luncheon served. Join us as we thank Fr. Phil for his service to Holy Family and St. Augustine Parishes, and to wish him well as he begins his service to the people of St. Michael Parish in Monroe. Fortnight for Freedom When, in the name of an ideology, there is an attempt to remove God from society, it ends up adoring idols, and very soon men and women lose their way, their dignity is trampled and their rights violated. Pope Francis, September 23, 2014 This year the fortnight runs from this Sunday, June 21 st to July 4 th. The theme is Freedom to Bear Witness to the truth of the Gospel. This initiative launched by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) highlights the gift of our religious freedom and the right to express that freedom publicly. In the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States it states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof The concept of a right to religious liberty is so familiar, it can seem self-evident. But it rests on a certain understanding of God and human nature. God, out of love for us, made us for himself and in his image. It is because we have that end and that nature that we need a right to religious liberty. The editors of the National Catholic Register wrote last week, The fortnight celebrates our God-given right to live our religion and fortifies our efforts to transmit this fundamental right to the next generation of Americans, who are shaped and molded by an increasingly secular culture. This slow and steady secularization of our society begs a response from all the faithful. Over the next two weeks we should examine what we as parishes, families and individuals are doing to promote and protect our right to express our religious beliefs. God bless your week, Fr. Joe

3 June 21, 2015 The one constant is God; everything else changes Page 3 The last few weeks have been increasingly harder for me to realize that this transition is here and it has shown no signs of stopping. It just seemed like yesterday when my new assignment was made known to me. It is a part of anyone's life to be engaged in some type of change, whether it would be a new job, a new house, welcoming a new life into the home... it happens to all in some way. Yet transitions also bring with it the realization of particular truths that perhaps were not known before or were not known with much understanding. For me, I'm referring to relationships. The relationships and the depth of such that can be cultivated through the span of three years. I certainly desire all of what our Heavenly Father wants to grace you with to be yours, which leads us to Eternal Life in Heaven. This is why we must never fail in our resolve to not only be believers and followers of Jesus, or even fans of what He has done... but we must cultivate the bond of unity that has reverberated throughout time, to share in the limitless communion with God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. For it is only in the life that we nurture in His grace, inseparable from His love letter, the Bible, and from the Traditions of Holy Mother Church, that we will find life everlasting. When we deny the truths that He has given us, when we pick apart the Bible and apply only what is convenient to us and dismiss the teachings which may make us uncomfortable... when we do the same with the Traditions of the Church, we are no longer following God but our selfish idea of who we want God to be. It is as what Stephen Ray said about Protestantism when he spoke to us during the Parish Mission with no authority being recognized, everyone has made himself/herself the Pope. I think he said it well (I would further go on to say that if we set ourselves apart from the Scriptures and the Church, we have made ourselves like gods, giving ourselves permission to believe whatever we want to believe and falling deeper in confusion and disarray... abandoning the true God for our flawed notion of who we want God to be). I don't know about you, but that is not the path I want to follow. We have one life; there is no reincarnation. We must make it count! Our God has given us an intellect to exercise and foster, and that should include what we do about our Catholic faith! I share that as my hope for you... since our goal in life is to help one another on the path towards holiness, on the path of our Blessed Lord Jesus to Heaven. One of the great things about the Eucharist is that every time we come together to take part in this august mystery of divine love, the Sacrifice of the Mass, we are united with one another. And so every time I will offer Holy Mass, I will certainly be praying for all of you, and I hope that you pray for me. Be sure to give Fr. Sean Bonner a joyous welcome! He is a newly ordained priest of Jesus Christ! When describing this transition, I don't think it's fair to use a word like "replacement." Rather, I believe this is the time in which our Heavenly Father has chosen to usher in something that is different and potentially very good. As with all priests, we come with our own strengths and weaknesses, talents and inabilities... it is never just nor right to compare one priest over another, but to recognize that, at this time, this is whom the Father is sending, trusting that He knows what He is doing, and only He can see the big picture of what is taking place. So welcome him with open arms, with the same hospitality that you have shown me over the years. The one constant in life is God and all of what He has communicated; everything else will change. If our eyes are fixed intently on Him and on His will, this change is not something to be spurned but rather something to rejoice in. I am thankful for the time spent here and feel very blessed to have spent my whole term here undisturbed - my many thanks to the Archbishop and the assignment board for permitting this. Continually pray for Fr. Joe and Dn. Alan that as they continually serve as leaders for God's Holy people here in these parishes, that they may never grow weary in their efforts but may be filled even more so with the zeal and love of Jesus that captured their hearts on the day of their ordinations. Pray too for our seminarian Mark as he continually gives of himself to the people of God. In Jesus through Mary, Fr. Phil A Special Thank You "Thank you to all who participated in our Corpus Christi Walk with Jesus. We were 226 strong! We are grateful to Fr. Joe, Fr. Phil, Deacon Alan and Mark Livingston, and all who served at the altars at St. Augustine and Holy Family. Thank you to all who helped organize, provide music, serve food, set up and clean up. This beautiful day could not have happened without the willing hands of so many. Special thanks to Dean Martindale and Brian Mackley for the shuttle bus between parishes. Thanks also to the Richmond Police Department and the Michigan State Police for escorting us on our way. And especially our thanks and gratitude to Our Lord for all He gives us every day!"
