Senior Health Days occur on the second Thursday of each month from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and equip seniors with tools they need. We approach this time from a holistic perspective, tending to our spirits and minds, as well as our bodies. Following a breakfast, we participate in brain games followed by Tai Chi. This is followed by a spiritual journey group. The day concludes with a catered lunch and conversation.
This event occurs on the fourth Thursday of each month from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and begins with a Bible Study, followed by a topical presentation. At 12:10 p.m., we gather for Holy Eucharist in the Chapel of Grace and then return to the Dining Room for a catered luncheon. Each event concludes with a film and discussion.
Twice a year we go to The Bishop’s Ranch in Healdsburg for a spiritual retreat. In addition to the beautiful scenery, our seniors enjoy a program that includes, prayer, arts and crafts, social hour, Holy Eucharist, Compline, meditation, music, walks on the labyrinth and pastoral appointments.
About the Spring 2012 Senior Retreat
How do we celebrate life...throughout years of joy, sorrow, successes and mistakes? Surrounded by the beauty of the Bishop’s Ranch in Healdsburg, we were invited to reflect on our personal journeys. With poignant reverence we offered our individual stories through discussion and creative art projects. Sharing laughter and tears, we gave thanks for the experiences, lessons and people in our lives. And then...we put on funny hats, blew bubbles and ate birthday cupcakes to celebrate God’s gift, our ‘one wild and precious life’.
During the retreat we made crafts for homebound seniors, enjoyed evening social hours, shared meals and practiced the rhythms of prayer and worship. Whether savoring moments of solitude or singing songs around the campfire, we were united in love and embraced by God’s presence.
