World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly

In 2021, Pope Francis established the celebration of World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly on the fourth Sunday of July, near the liturgical memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne. The United States Bishops have approved the transfer of this celebration in the U.S. to the first weekend after Labor Day in September (this year September 7-8, 2024) to coincide with National Grandparents (and the Elderly) Day in the United States as many local communities, schools and parishes have celebrated for some time. In August, the Office of Worship will provide liturgical suggestions and guidance to celebrate this day.
