Today is Grandparents’ Day and our school community celebrates and pays tribute to grandparents and the role they play in handing on the faith to their grandchildren and in supporting the community of faith at home and in the parish. They bring joy to the lives of their grandchildren and in turn grandchildren can bring real joy to them.
Our grandparents are a special gift in our lives. They watch over us as we grow and are often some of the most important teachers in our lives. They teach us about our common home, which they have been watching over and caring for long before we were here to help! They have seen and experienced many changes in our world, both good and bad.
We thank you Lord for our grandparents, help us to be thankful for all they teach us.
