Submitted By Cici Susbilla
Fr. Ritche Bueza, together with the congregation, said a special blessing for the grandparents as they gathered in front of the altar during the parish school's Thanksgiving Mass celebrated on November 21.
Every year, the school celebrates Grandparents/Special Persons Day, to honor the grandparents (other special persons) of the students,' to thank them for the love they give and for the sacrifices they make for their family. Guests had the opportunity to visit the classrooms where students presented the special gifts they had made for their guests as a token of appreciation for their love and support. The celebration concluded with a light reception in the hall where guests also enjoyed special treats from the bake sale and free child fingerprinting services offered by volunteers from Milpitas Police Department. St. John the Baptist School is located at 360 S. Abel Street in Milpitas.
