World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly
To honour the Pope’s request that a weekend close to the Feasts of Saints Anne and Joachim be designated as World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, the Archdiocese has designated Sunday the 23rd as the day our diocese will honour these beautiful people in our community. There is a Plenary Indulgence for this special occasion and more information can be found HERE. Let us pray:
Lord send your blessings down upon our grandparents and all elderly people who have, throughout the generations, influenced and supported us in our faith, helping us to be followers of Jesus. In gratitude for all we have received, let us pray that we continue to open our hearts and minds to their wisdom and experience.
