PANAJI: Various activities were organised to commemorate ‘Grandparents’ Day’ at the Guardian Angel Church in Curchorem.
The event organised by catechetical students began with the Eucharistic celebration by Parish Priest Fr Vital Miranda. Children later honoured the grandparents by enthusiastically presenting various events like skits, songs, flower bouquets, handmade cards and gifts to their respective grandparents.
Grandparents are the root of family
Referring to grandparents as the root of the family, Parish Priest Fr Vital Miranda said they provide support to the family with their experience of life and knowledge.
“Grandparents play an imperative role in the life of every child, and they support their children and grandchildren selflessly and leave a lasting impression in the child’s life,” said Fr Miranda.
Respect grandparents like parents
He advised the children to respect their grandparents the same way they respect their parents.
Assistant Parish Priest Fr Ashlif Correia, sisters from the Perpetual Succour Convent, Curchorem, and catechists attended the function. Later, sweets were distributed to the grandparents and children.
