Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day

On September 9, we celebrate Grandparents Day. Honor the special gifts of grandparents in your community with a homily inspired by the liturgical readings for that day. The homily also makes a great reflection to print in your parish bulletin or school newsletter.

​People Respond to Pope Francis’s Message About the Older Generations

Loyola Press asked people about the Pope’s message to honor the wisdom of older generations. We also asked what younger generations can learn from older generations.
