Grandparents Day in Martinez
Each year in early September, the halls of St. Catherine of Siena School are alive with the sounds of children singing, reciting, laughing and storytelling as students prepare for the arrival of some very special visitors — their wonderful grandparents. On Sept. 11, more than 120 grandparents attended us for a beautiful prayer service during which each class made a presentation to honor their grandparents. The grandparents prayed, laughed and sang as they were entertained by their grandchildren. The prayer service ended with a special blessing from pastor, Father Clarence S.A. Zamora. Afterward, the grandparents were escorted to the classrooms for a tour followed by lunch.
