TODAY IS FATHER’S DAY IN HAITI Haitians celebrate Father’s Day on the last Sunday in June. In Medor the fathers and father figures will be recognized at Sunday Mass and many families will gather to share a special meal to honor their fathers, step- fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers, great-grandfathers and other father figures. We wish Father Frantz, pastor of St. Joseph parish, and all the fathers and father figures in St. Joseph of Medor parish a Happy Father’s Day. We recognize the important role they play in nurturing Medor’s children and in building a stronger community. We appreciate their resilience, enduring spirit, and strength in the face of multiple challenges. We hope they enjoy their special day.
