Saints Peter and Paul


June 13 - Saint Anthony of Padua

June 13 is the feast day of Saint Anthony of Padua. Saint Anthony of Padua (15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231) lived 36 years full of teaching and preaching and converting even the worst criminals and sinners to the faith in Spain and Italy and whose tong relics are still exposed in his great shrine of Saint Anthony of Padua in Padua close to Venice in northern Italy.  


Saints Peter and Paul

June 29 - Saints Peter and Paul

Tuesday June 29, is the great Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul, the two major pillars of the church. In this day we pray the Lord for the successors of Peter, especially his Holiness Pope Francis and all our church leaders, particularly his Beatitude Cardinal Bechara Rahi, the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch, Elias Abdalla Zaidan, our Bishop and Bishop Bernard Hebda of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Paul and all bishops of the true faith.

In May, we celebrated mom! On June 19, we will celebrate that special guy in our lives, dad! To help do it right, the MYO will be offering special "dad" gifts guaranteed to please any and all of our fathers! Stop by after liturgy in June to purchase your selection.

From May 23 to May 27, the MYO will be attending the national MYO Convention in Pennsylvania. The MYO would like to thank the church groups and the Knights of Columbus for assisting in the trip costs.

A Post-Pandemic Message - Relief for Lebanon

The Maronite Bishops around the World are waging a constant campaign of support and relief for our brothers and sisters in distress in Lebanon, the country of origin for the majority of the families in our church community. They are urging the Maronite communities around the world to show whatever support available by sending their donations to Caritas-Lebanon, the major Catholic charity in Lebanon and the Middle East. Every penny counts. Lebanon is affected by a dramatic economic situation and is still under economic siege. People are facing a 100 years ago WW1 famine and starvation style crisis, topped by the pandemic. Responding to this call, Holy Family Church continues to send support to Caritas-Lebanon through the Maronite Eparchy in Saint Louis. If you can, you may send your checks to Holy Family with the notation: Caritas-Lebanon. Thank you for your support to your Maronite brothers and sister in Lebanon, where the last Christian strong-hold of the Middle East is still surviving in dignity. Prayers are always a very effective way of support and they are powerful.
