Monsignor Stephen Orr, Pastor of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart Parish and Chaplain of Monsignor J.M. Hanson Council 5038, both in Ankeny, Iowa, offers this Labor Day Message:
This weekend we observe Labor Day. While it is a civic holiday, it also touches our faith. We are grateful for the God-given talents that allow people to not only make a living for themselves and their families, but also to contribute to the good of the human family at large. We pray in a special way for all those who are seeking work that they will find a job that will give them personal satisfaction and a living wage.
