Dear Parents/Guardians

Happy Father’s Day to all our Dads

We thank you God for Fathers – for their love and care for their families 

We praise you God for Fathers – for their leadership and strength

We remember all Fathers who have died. May they enjoy the peace

And happiness of eternal life

God, you are God and Father of all. Give your blessing to all Fathers.

Fill them with a father’s love. Reward them for their generosity

May all Fathers have a wonderful Fathers Day and enjoy being spoilt by your families.
