A Word From Bishop Medley

A Word From Bishop Medley: The active and vital ministry of the elderly

By the time you receive this edition of The Western Kentucky Catholic in your home, we will have just observed the World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly on July 25, 2021.  Pope Francis, in his wisdom, called for the observance of this day in light of the challenging year we’ve just come through and its impact most especially on the older members of our parish communities and our families. Many became ill, others died or suffered the loss of a spouse or loved one, and many others experienced profound isolation and loneliness. Our Holy Father reminds us that God has been with us through it all, choosing as the theme for the observance, “I am with you always.”
