Supporting Our Catholic Grandparents

 Christine Evans of Horsham parish recently invited Katherine Bergin, our diocesan Marriage and Family Life Adviser, to address a group of Grandparents one Sunday evening, in order to form a Grandparents' Group in our parish.

After introductions of the eighteen grandparents present Katherine took us through the history, the aims, the involvement of our diocese, the pilgrimage to come later in the summer on 14 July at Aylesford Friary, and the prayer for grandparents written specially by Pope Benedict. The evening concluded successfully with commitments from all present to continue the group.

There will also be a day in the Diocese for Grandparents on Saturday 26th May, 2012 9.45 am – 1 pm (Coffee from 9.30 am) at DABCEC, 4 Southgate Drive, Crawley, RH10 6RP. To book or for further information please contact: Katherine Bergin 01293 651152
