leave a comment »

On September 26, 2009 the Catholic Diocese of Palm Beach will be first United States host of the National Grandparents Pilgrimage consisting of a Mass celebrated by Most Rev. Gerald M. Barbarito, in honor of all grandparents and the special role they play in family life and faith formation.

All families are invited to “pilgrim” to the Cathedral for this special Mass scheduled for 11:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola, 9999 N. Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL. A light reception will follow in the Cathedral Hall. The National Grandparents Pilgrimage supports and encourages grandparents in the transmission of the faith. A Universal Prayer for Grandparents was composed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in 2008 for the National Grandparents Pilgrimage which has touched many countries around the world.
