A Message from Father Mark Jette

St. Joseph, the foster father of Jesus, continues to walk among us today in the persons of those men we call our fathers - when they teach faith and values to their children, when they show their children what is really important in life, when they spend time with and inspire their children.

My God the Father bless our fathers and help them to be men who know the way, who go the way, and who show the way to their families.


God took the strength of a mountain,
the majesty of a tree,
the warmth of the summer sun,
the calm of the quiet sea,
the generous soul of nature,
the comforting arm of night,
the wisdom of the ages,
the power of the eagle in flight,
the joy of a morning in spring,
the faith of a mustard seed,
the patience of eternity,
the depth of a family’s need.
Then God combined these qualities
when there was nothing more to add,
He knew His work was now complete,
and so He called it….DAD!

He never looks for praises, he’s never one to boast,
he just goes on quietly working for those he loves the most.
His dreams are seldom spoken, his wants are very few,
and most of the time his worries will go unspoken too.
He’s there….a firm foundation through all our storms of life,
a sturdy hand to hold to in times of stress or strife,
a true friend we can turn to when times are good or bad,
one of our greatest blessings - the man that we call Dad.
