Today we celebrate Saints Joachim and Anne, the grandparents of Jesus and remember all Grandparents and the Elderly.
Over the past few months, the Diocesan Marriage and Family Life team has inspired the grandparent’s prayer group in several parishes including Our Lady of Assumption (HedgeEnd), Immaculate Conception (Stubbington), St Mary’s (Gosport), Holy Family (Southampton), St Thomas More (Twyford) and St Bedes (Basingstoke).
