World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly

 Friday, July 24th

Pope Francis instituted the Church-wide celebration of World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly every year on the fourth Sunday of July, close to the liturgical memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne, the grandparents of Jesus. The theme chosen for this year is "In old age they will still bear fruit" (Psalm 92:15) and intends to emphasize how grandparents and the elderly are a value and a gift both for society and for ecclesial communities. All parishes are encouraged to celebrate the grandparents and elderly in their parish community at one of the weekend Masses on July 24, 2022.
