Faith Facts

Week 1 - July 25 -29 (Green)










World day for Grandparents and the Elderly


St James, apostle


Sts Joachim and Anne, parents of Blessed Virgin Mary




Sts Martha, Mary and Lazarus


Many of the images of Saint Joachim and Anne, the Mother of Mary and of course the grandparents of Jesus, depict a loving couple.

At one time, July 26 was the feast of St. Anne only, but in the new calendar the two feasts of the parents of Mary are celebrated together. According to early writings 170, Joachim was a prominent and respected man who had no children. In answer to Anne’s and Joachim’s prayers, Mary was born and was dedicated to God at a very early age.

In many countries Grandparents Day is celebrated. The feast of Saint Anne and Joachim is a wonderful opportunity us to also celebrate our Grandparents
