Sunday 25 July will see the celebration of the First World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly. The theme chosen by the Holy Father for this World Day is “I am with you always” (cf. Mt 28:20) which is a way of expressing the closeness of the Lord and the Church to every older person, especially in these challenging pandemic times.
The Dicastery for Laity and Family Life has released resources to support this, and they are asking that each church dedicates a Mass on that day to celebrating the day for Grandparents and the Elderly.
