Senior Adult Ministry

Our Senior Ministry serves the spiritual and temporal needs of our parish community ages 55 and older.  Seniors go through many changes as they grow older.  Retirement and/or loss of a spouse are major life changing events.  Each of us needs to hear God's word, experience companionship and friendship, and be aware of services external to our parish specially designed to support seniors.  All Are Welcome!

If you are interested in joining Happy Hearts please contact Sandi Reiss at 479-783-7745.  Please join us for various card and table games which provides the opportunity to find new friends and continue existing friendships. 

Ladies over 21, join us on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Center.  Bring $5.00 towards the prize pot and a dish to share if your able.   Feel free to bring friends too!  Contact is Sandi Reiss at 783-7745
