July 25 is Grandparent’s Day

When Pope Francis announced that July 25 would be celebrated as the Church’s first celebration of World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly, it was an ideal opportunity to reflect on the value of grandparents in our lives.

The Church-wide celebration of World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly July 25 is being called “the first fruits of the Amoris Laetitia Family Year” and “a gift to the whole Church that is destined to continue into the future.”
