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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person activities are suspended until further notice. We are still active and in touch. How? Through computer, mobile and zoom contact.
We pray THE ROSARY together every Thursday at 11:00 AM on Zoom and you are welcome to be there with us!
Looking ahead to Advent, a special ADVENT ROSARY & REFLECTION will be held Thursday mornings on December 3, 10 and 17. They still start at 11:00 AM just as the ongoing Thursday ROSARY. Fr. Mark Toup, Sr. Mariam Heidland, and Fr. John Johnson will also take part as they put us in a frame of mind to see Advent through Mary’s eyes as she waits for the birth of her son.
Mark your calendars.
ROSARY reminders are sent to all members and friends each week along with a Zoom link/connection for use with a computer or mobile phone. We’ll be pleased to add your name to the reminder list; just let us know.
