Saint Bernard School celebrated grandparents on April 6 with a Grandparents’ Mass and Brunch, which was attended by about 250 people.

The event is an annual tradition currently in its ninth year at Saint Bernard. The occasion aims to connect the generations and celebrate grandparents and the special meaning they hold in our lives.

The Mass was celebrated by the Most Rev. Michael R. Cote, bishop of Norwich. 

SBS senior Faith McBride welcomed the grandparents to the Mass. “Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure, the founders of a loving legacy, the greatest storytellers, and the keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory,” she said. “Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation. Their very special love sets them apart. Through happiness and sorrow, through their special love and caring, grandparents keep a family close at heart.”

Following Mass, grandparents attended a brunch in their honor.
