JUNE 20, 2021 • “Every family needs a father — a father who shares in his family’s joy and pain, hands down wisdom to his children and offers them firm guidance and love.”  Pope Francis

On this Father’s Day, I offer my grateful prayers for and generous blessings to all fathers, living and deceased, in families throughout the Diocese of Trenton as well as to those men who fulfill a father’s role and responsibilities.  In this Year of St. Joseph, may our patron intercede for you with his foster Son, asking his Divine grace and strength as you live out your paternal vocation in love.  

Most Reverend David M. O’Connell, C.M., J.C.D.
Bishop of Trenton
