Share your stories of how your grandparents have influenced your life, your family, your faith

Pope Francis has proclaimed July 25 as the World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly, in recognition of the tremendous impact that this group has on the lives of grandchildren, families and younger people.

With that impact in mind, The Criterion is inviting you to share your thoughts and stories about how your grandmother, your grandfather—or any older person—has influenced you, inspired you or guided you in your life, your marriage, your family, your faith.

Send your submissions to John Shaughnessy by e-mail at jshaughnessy@archindy.org or by mail in care of The Criterion, 1400 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46202. Please include your parish and a daytime phone number where you can be reached. †
