Grandparents & Grandfriends Day Tribute

Notre Dame Academy traditionally invites Grandparents & Grandfriends of our students to attend Mass the day before Thanksgiving.

Since we are unable to gather in-person this year, we are celebrating our annual Grandparents & Grandfriends Day through this special video tribute featuring photos submitted by our students and readings of the two Blessings that are said at the end of our annual Grandparents & Grandfriends Day Mass.

Students, please take time today to make a call to these special individuals in your life and share the Blessings written below and video with them and let them know how much they mean to you.


Grandparents' & Grandfriends' Blessing

One of the greatest gifts God has given me is the gift of you.

Since the day you were born, up until this very moment,

I have always loved you. 

 

It has given me great joy watching you grow.

For the time we have shared and the time we will share,

I am most grateful.

 

No matter what happens in this world,

Know this: wherever you go and whatever you do,

My love goes with you always. This day and forevermore,

Amen.


Grandchild's Blessing

 

One of the greatest gifts God has given me is the gift of you.

Since I was a young child, up until this very moment,

I have always loved you.

 

On birthdays and holidays, athletic games and special events,

I have felt your presence around me.

I am truly grateful for all that you have given me, to help me grow.

For the time we have shared and the time we will share,

I am most grateful.

 

No matter what happens in this world,

Know this: Wherever you go and whatever you do,

My love goes with you always. This day and forevermore.

Amen.
