World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly




This weekend the Church is recognizing a special day for the Elderly!


We are very close to the Feast Day of Saint Joachim and St. Ann, the parents of Mary, the Mother of God.


They were examples of faith for Mary and were a powerful influence in her life. We can think of our own family members who are older, who are praying for us and helping us on the way.


As we honor this new emphasis in the Church, we pray for all of those who are older and who are a great positive influence on our Church and world!


May the blessings of Almighty God be with them on this weekend!


And let us continue to pray for one another.


Fr. Robert J. Schneider

Pastor
