"Father's" Day

For several years now, my family has made Father's Day cards for our local spiritual fathers, our parish priests. These greetings come from a card pattern in which the front is a shirt and tie like this:

We use black construction paper and instead of folding each collar tab at an angle, we fold them straight toward the middle and glue a white tab of paper in between them. Then we glue black buttons down the center. Using a white piece of paper attached inside, we write our message.

As this Year of the Priest comes to a close, this project provides a nice way to let our priests know how much we appreciate all they do for us.

St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
