Wyoming Area Catholic

School will celebrate

Grandparents’ Mass

Wyoming Area Catholic will celebrate Grandparents’ Mass on Monday, Oct. 23, for students in grades four to eight. This Mass will take place at 9 a.m. and will be celebrated in the school gymnasium.

The Rev. Peter Tomczak, pastor of St. Monica Parish, will be the celebrant at the Mass.

Wyoming Area Catholic School recognize that in this day and age, grandparents play an ever increasing role in families. As a school community, Wyoming Area Catholic would like to thank them for being so important by celebrating Mass with them and inviting them to visit their grandchild’s classroom.

Mass will begin at 9 a.m. with a brief reception to follow. Students will then be able to take their grandparents to their classroom to see their school work.

If grandparents are deceased, or are living but not able to attend, students can invite someone who has a “grandfatherly” or “grandmotherly” presence in their lives. Students will be able to sit with their families at Mass.
