Day for the Elderly and Grandparents

On July 24th the Church celebrated the second annual

The theme for this year’s celebration was “In old age they will still bear fruit”

In his message Pope Francis said..”let us find ways to honour the elders in our lives. Let’s show them we are grateful for their unconditional love and all they have given us. Let’s help our elders to appreciate the many ways in which they still bear fruit.”

One of our highlights in Holy Family Residence was a Sports Day. Residents joined in wholeheartedly, showing their skills.Others were spectators enjoying the company and the summer sunshine


Winner takes all!

Bit of cheating in the egg and spoon race.

An enjoyable afternoon for all ages. Pope Francis reminds us, “no one is ever completely incapable of entering into relationship with others and making a difference in the world.”
