Remember that this Sunday is Father’s Day…celebrate your father, grandfather, and husband with a Printery House card and gift. Is your father or husband your “rock”—the guy who keeps you steady, solid, and on whom you can always depend? Give the gift of a St. Peter coffee mug filled with his favorite candies or specially flavored coffee and a gift card to a coffee shop.
A perfect gift for men, this handcrafted ceramic mug depicts the Apostle Peter, who up as a fisherman on Lake Genesareth, alongside his brother. In his gospel, Luke recounted the story of Peter catching so many fish that he fell down before the feet of Jesus and was told by the Lord, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” After becoming a disciple of Jesus, Christ gave Peter the name of Cephas, or rock, and said “…you are Peter and upon this rock I will build my church…”
We celebrate and honor Fathers throughout the month of June, especially on June 21st, designated as Father’s Day. A thoughtful gift for your husband or father is “A Father’s Prayer for His Children” that is available in a variety of formats—framed print, acrylic block, tea light, mini print and as a holy card. This inspiring prayer is directed to St. Joseph, asking him to watch over children as well as helping fathers to speak and act in love towards their children. .Also, bless your Father and your family with a statue of St. Joseph the Worker, the tenderhearted father and faithful guardian of Jesus.
It’s June and thoughts turn to Father’s Day and ways to honor Dad. Show Dad that you love, appreciate, and honor him with a Printery House Father’s Day card. A father’s love is very special, an extension of the love of God our heavenly Father.
Think about it for a moment: When’s the last time you sat down and wrote a nice card or letter to your dad, or someone who’s been like a dad? If it’s been a while, go for it this year. It may seem like a challenge, but you’ll never regret it.
If you’re wondering how to get started on ways to “speak your love” to dad, take heart. Many Christian cards for Father’s Day can help you find the right words to express gratitude, joy, fond memories or just to let dad know he’s special. They can also inspire you to include a handwritten message that speaks to the heart and makes the card that much more meaningful.
Here are Some Idea-generators for Writing Dad That Note This Father’s Day:
What’s one special memory you have with him? It doesn’t have to be a holiday, or anything considered a “big” moment. It can be a simple gesture or experience you had with him that he may not even realize made such an impression on your life. Share it in a few sentences.
Did Dad take part in acts of service that impacted you? Mention it to him inside a card. Sometimes it’s the selfless acts like reaching out to an elderly neighbor or involvement in a church project that you remember so well – and he’ll be so thrilled that you noticed his acts of service.
What’s funny about Dad? All dads are funny in their own way. If he says or does something that always gives you a chuckle, let him know. This is a lighthearted way to express your love and appreciation that’s still very meaningful.
What did you learn from dad? Maybe it was how to mow the yard or change a tire. Maybe it was managing money, a favorite recipe or how to respect your elders. Whatever you learned from dad, take a moment to let him know in a few sentences. He’ll treasure the knowledge he’s passed on to you, even if it seems like something commonplace.
As you consider finding the right Christian cards for Father’s Day, think of buying from a made-in-the-USA source that has a great story of its own: The Printery House. For more than 60 years, The Printery House has created and lettered unique religious greeting card designs and stationary, all from the on-site print shop in the hills of northwest Missouri. All sales are part of the apostolic work of the monks at Conception Abbey, so you’ll know you’re making a difference.
