Franciscan Sister Sharon Paul reflects on Grandparents’ Day at St. Benedict School, Cambridge, Ohio.
Grandparents’ Day was celebrated recently at St. Benedict School, Cambridge, Ohio in grand fashion. Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were called upon to do various tasks to help the children honor their special relatives.
In the Old Testament in the book of Proverbs is found this verse: “Children’s children are the crown of the elderly, and the glory of children is their parentage.”(Proverbs 17:6) Keeping alive this wisdom, St. Benedict School likes to hosts a book fair where books for all ages can be purchased on this day Grandparents and grandchildren come together. Everyone can find something that they enjoy.
Significant to the day is a special Eucharistic celebration. Father Bob Borer was this year’s presider at the Thursday Eucharist.
Musician Sister Carol Juckem and Sister June Smith helped lead the songs.
Visits to the classroom and a lunch followed.
