Young at Heart Seniors Ministry
Joining Young at Heart, if you are age 55 or older, is an enriching, educational and pro-active experience that is right for you. Each month you are welcome to join with us at First Friday Mass and breakfast, also at a fun-filled luncheon or at an occasional off-campus event.
- After Mass, the First Friday breakfasts (each month), provide an opportunity to chat with others, to eat home-cooked potluck food, and to experience a true sharing experience.
- The luncheons, on the third Wednesday of each month (September through May), are casual and engaging. They are potluck style and always include delicious food and desserts. Joining with us you will experience senior togetherness in an easy friendly atmosphere. The luncheons programs also feature guest speakers, activities, or special holiday treats.
- Group outing events are designed for your enjoyment and can include excursions, day-long events, or attendance at a variety of entertainment venues.

ANNOUNCING: A bible study and discussion on Mondays starting weekly on September 14, to October 19. Each of the six-week sessions runs from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM. We will ZOOM again with link reminders sent each week. The Title: NO GREATER LOVE. It is described as a study depicting Christ’s amazing love for humankind. Also, it is a biblical pilgrimage, written by noted Catholic author Edward Sri. During the study we are guided through the last hours of Christ’s life, walking with Him every step of the way. We will enjoy Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations and historical context that sheds light on Christ’s suffering and death. Tuning in will provide us a deeper understanding and appreciation of Christ’s unconditional love. It will help us draw closer to Jesus than ever before.
