Join us at the Basilica of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle for a heartwarming celebration of fathers and grandfathers this Father’s Day. From June 8th to 16th, 2024, we invite you to participate in a novena of Masses dedicated to both living and deceased fathers.

Father Jorge A. Gómez extends a personal invitation to all to submit names of fathers and children, uniting in prayer through the novena. This event not only honors our earthly fathers but also reflects on our relationship with our Heavenly Father, emphasizing the Christian duty to regard God as our ultimate father. This connection, as taught by Jesus through the Our Father prayer, invites us to view God as “Abba”—a deeply personal and loving father-figure.

The Basilica welcomes everyone to contribute to this sacred occasion through prayers and donations, which support the Basilica’s operations and allow it to continue serving as a place of pilgrimage and worship.

Event Details:

We appreciate your generosity in helping us keep the doors open for the many who visit each month. Celebrate your father by joining us in this special novena, and let us together uplift the spirit of fatherhood within our community.


Father’s Day Novena Prayer

“God, Our Father and generous Creator, we implore Your abundant blessing upon our Dads and Grandfathers. We ask that Your Spirit may inspire them to be the very image of Love for their sons and daughters. We entrust our Grandfathers and Dads who have already died, to Your Merciful and Sacred Heart. We ask this through the Risen Jesus who lives and reigns forever and ever. AMEN.”
