World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly   

Pope Francis has instituted a World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly on Sunday, July 25th 2021. Identifying with the more senior members of our society, he says “The whole Church is close to you – to us – and cares about you, loves you and does not want to leave you alone!”

As the Pope says, we should cherish the elderly and recognise that there’s no retirement age from the work of proclaiming the Gospel and handing down traditions to grandchildren.
