World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly
On Sunday, July 24, 2022, the Second World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly will be celebrated throughout the universal Church. The theme chosen by the Holy Father is “In old age they will still bear fruit” (Psalm 92:15) and emphasizes how grandparents and the elderly are a gift both to society and the Church. This year, Pope Francis is also extending the opportunity for a plenary indulgence to the faithful who devote adequate time to visit, in person or virtually, their elderly brothers and sisters on July 24.
The Office of Pro-Life, Marriage, and Family Life suggests the USCCB website for additional resources.
