Father’s role in family very important; Bishop Gerald Lobo

A father’s role in the family is very important. His job is to provide for his family, by working, disciplining and nurturing them. Father plays an important role in strengthening the family; his love for his family is ultimate. A father takes all hardships to support his family. His role is prominent in promoting overall development of the family. Fathers play a much more important role in the family. He is the backbone of the family and his role cannot be undermined.
