Wednesday, July 26, marked the feast day of Jesus’ grandparents, St. Joachim and St. Anne. 

Some modern-day grandparents looked to the family of Christ at a Mass in Coney Island at the St. Joachim and Anne Nursing And Rehabilitation Center.

They were joined by Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens CEO, Monsignor Alfred Lopinto, in celebrating the liturgy. 

Monsignor Lopinto said the feast is a special occasion for the seniors because this facility was made to take care of grandparents in need.
