Cayman: Father’s Day Message fromHon. Juliana O’Connor-Connolly, JP, MP

Today, I join the world in celebrating our fathers and father figures, who are very much the core of our Islands.

We thank you for embracing your roles to nurture and support your families and for being their guardians, providers and protectors.

On Father’s Day, we are reminded of the special contributions of the courageous seafarers of these Islands who braved the ocean to work in faraway places so that they could build our nation. As Fathers of this country, these brave men, many of whom are still alive, played an integral part in the traditions and heritage of these Islands. Your story is one of courage, heroism and deep faith, which continues to inspire us all today. We honour you.

I also want to recognise our veterans, who fought to give us peace we now enjoy. It is your sacrifice that assures the hopes, dreams and aspirations of future generations of Caymanians.

This special day, we must also pause to express our deep appreciation to all fathers who serve in the Cayman Islands’ civil and public service. Through your day to day contributions, our people are able to reap the benefits of efficient government services.

We are always truly grateful to the fathers and Members of Parliament who contribute in the House of Parliament. As you represent the interests and concerns of your constituents, you are sources of strength for our extended families in the communities.

While we celebrate fathers at home, we pay special respects to the fathers of the Royal Family, including His Majesty, King Charles III. May healing angels encamp around him at this time.

My prayer for all fathers is that you will continue to be the strength of your families and that our Heavenly Father continues to give you the knowledge and wisdom to lead your households.

May God shield and guide you as you live a life that is pleasing unto Him who is able to provide exceedingly and abundantly more than you can ever ask or imagine.

On behalf of my Government colleagues – Have a blessed and enjoyable Father’s Day.
