Grandparents Day!

The Birth of the Virgin Mary to Joachim and Anne.

We are inviting all grandparents to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on July 26, 2017, the feast day of Saints Joachim and Anne, the grandparents of Jesus, at 12:15 AM.

Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke will be the principal celebrant of the Mass.

The Holy Mass will be offered for all grandparents, especially those entrusted with caring for children and for passing on the Christian faith!

At the conclusion of Holy Mass, there will be the opportunity for public veneration of a first-class relic of Saint Anne.

Transmitting the faith is one of the greatest challenges and one of the most important tasks of grandparents. There is a real danger that the present generation will break the chain of faith which links us  to the early Church. We live in a world of broken and fragmented families. Grandparents often are the only people in their grandchild’s life who are believing, practicing Catholics and they thereby  have a unique opportunity to plant seeds of faith with their grandchildren.
