PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Commonwealth Senior Living at Churchland House celebrated Father’s Day the best way they could on Sunday.
The former pastor of Macedonia Church of God in Christ lives there. His son, the current pastor, came by to wish him a Happy Father’s Day and offer blessings to other fathers there as well.
People were invited to come by, wear a mask, and social distance while they held a small church service outside. The executive director at Churchland House says COVID-19 has changed the way they have to do things, but they still wanted to be able to celebrate Father’s Day.
“We wanted to make sure that our residents and our families knew how much we appreciate both of them, and that we want them to celebrate the day. It might not be the typical way they would celebrate it, but we want to make it as special as possible,” said Executive Director of Commonwealth Senior Living at Churchland House Susan Ayala.
Throughout the day they held a parade of cars where people were able to drive up, blow a kiss and give a gift to those living there.
