On Tuesday, October 27, the school community celebrated a virtual Grandparents Day. While grandparents were unable to join their grandsons in person this year, they were treated to an online Mass and sent a 2020 Grandparents Day Video to get a glimpse of school life today. Below is the prayer bestowed upon our grandparents from Fr. Phil Judge, S.J., McQuaid’s president, following the virtual Mass.
Loving God, we pray in gratitude for our grandparents:
for the life they gave our parents and for the life they give to us,
for the ways they help us and made us strong,
for the ways they paved the road that led us here,
for the ways they love us no matter what.
May our grandparents grow in wisdom and joy in life.
May they find peace and rest from their work.
May they be healed of every sickness and pain.
And may they see with their own eyes the glory of your Son, Jesus, in the love of their children and grandchildren.
Send down your Spirit to bless them always.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
