grandparents day

Pope Francis has established the 4th Sunday of July each year as the “World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly”. With the theme "I am with you always" (Matthew 28:20) the day draws attention to the vital role grandparents and the elderly play in our families, communities and in the mission of the Church

The first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly will be celebrated in circumstances in which it will still not be possible in many countries for the elderly to physically attend Mass. A special blessing will be prayed during our live streamed  Mass on Sunday 25 July at 9.30am.
