Happy Mother's Day

Dear St. Catherine Parish Family,

On this Mother’s Day weekend, I am particularly grateful to all the wonderful mothers of our parish, and in a special way, I thank God for the gift of my own mother. I would like to echo the words of St. John Paul II who, in 1995, wrote in his Letter to Women: “Thank you, women who are mothers! You have sheltered human beings within yourselves in a unique experience of joy and travail. This experience makes you become God's own smile upon the newborn child, the one who guides your child's first steps, who helps it to grow, and who is the anchor as the child makes its way along the journey of life.”

On this day, let us all entrust all of our mothers to the care of the Mother of God. May our Blessed Mother watch over all mothers in fulfilling the great vocation given to them by our heavenly Father. (Please see the list below of those mothers who will be remembered in a particular way as part of our novena of Masses.)

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Neil Dhabliwala
