Father’s Day

Together in Life, Blessed Sacrament Parish pro-life ministry in Hibbing, marked Father’s Day with the sale of caramels after all Masses. The ministry is dedicated to prayer, education and charity to promote and defend human life. Part of the educational aspect highlights the impact fathers have on the development of children in their emotional, spiritual, financial and social development. Fathers were honored and blessed during the Sunday liturgy.
