Our parish wanted to honour and celebrate the important role grandparents play in our lives by dedicating a worship service to them.

So Sunday, September 10th became Grandparents Day at The Church of Our Saviour The Redeemer Stoney Creek.

We were thrilled to see so many grandparents and grandchildren present for the service.

It was an opportunity to express joy and sense the blessing in both having grandparents and in being a grandparent.

As they came forward to the altar for communion, parishioners were invited to light a candle in memory of a grandparent or other loved one.

Following the service the 140th Anniversary Committee hosted a special coffee hour.

It was a wonderful way to honour those very special people in each of our lives.
