Grandparents’ Day Blessing & Gift

By Admin -


Sunday July 24 is the 2nd World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly instituted by Pope Francis. Families are invited to bring their grandparent(s) to Mass on that weekend if these seniors are well enough and comfortable about gathering in-person. A special prayer and blessing will be given at all Masses that weekend. Also, we are preparing a small gift to show our appreciation for grandparents and the elderly attending Mass that weekend. Please use this link to sign-up so that we will know how many gifts we need. A maximum of two gifts will be handed out  (one for each grandparent). You can also sign up for a gift for yourself if you are over 65 years old. Sign-up closes on Monday July 18.

Children, here’s something fun you can do for your grandparents. Make a lovely drawing or sculpture of your grandparent(s) with a nice message on it, then send us a photo of it. If there’s room, we may run it in next week’s bulletin. Email your photos by July 18 to Bertilla: bwatanabe@rcav.org.
