From the Pastor
The Essence of Fatherhood06-18-2017Fr. Don Kline, V.F.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Most post-pubescent males can father a child. Fathering a child is vastly different from being a good father. So what does it take to be a good father? One this Father’s Day, I would like to address the vital role my father holds in my life and the important role of the father in the life of his family.
Of the many lessons I received from my father, his willingness to be present to our family keeps our family rooted and focused on what is essential. Running his own business could have easily consumed him and kept him away from our family. I cannot remember my dad ever missing dinner with the family. His presence wasn’t just at dinnertime. I also recall that our family was usually together on the weekends. Whether we were doing chores in the house, mowing the lawn outside or heading to the lake for some fun, it was dad, with mom at his side, leading the charge by being present.READ MORE
