Seniors with Grace

The cathedral’s seniors are a diverse, stimulating community of seasoned people who are aging with grace. We gather to learn, grow, stay healthy and enjoy each other’s company — and everyone is welcome at our gatherings.

 

Retreat

Once or twice a year, we enjoy a retreat in beautiful Healdsburg.  In addition to beautiful scenery, our group will enjoy a program that include arts and crafts, social hour, Holy Eucharist, Compline, meditation, music, walks on the labyrinth and pastoral appointments. This year’s theme is “Small Miracles.”

All are welcome; RSVP is required. Transportation to and from the cathedral is included in the attendance costs. Payment plans, in addition limited scholarships, are available.

To request an information packet and/or to RSVP, please contact Outreach Ministries or the Rev. Nina Pickerrell.

Community Days

Community Days occur on the fourth Thursday of each month (unless affected by a holiday) from 9:30 am – 2 pm.  Enjoy a full breakfast from 9:30 to 10 am, followed by Bible study and a topical presentation. At 12:10 pm, we gather for Holy Eucharist in the Chapel of Grace and then return to the Dining Room for a catered luncheon. We conclude our day with the sharing of senior grocery care bags.

Most senior events take place in the Chapter House Dining Room. Trained medical staff are available at these events to assist with basic health assessment and referrals.

Check our calendar for upcoming Senior Community Days.

Senior Community Day with Judith Dold, Professional Organizer Owner of Twilight Organizing
Thursday, June 28 at 9:30 am – 2 pm

Decluttering can sometimes feel like an emotionally charged word. It not only describes an action that many of us feel impelled to take for important reasons, but also one that sparks confusion and procrastination. Please join Judith Dold, Professional Organizer and owner of Twilight Organizing as she demystifies the organizing process and makes decluttering less overwhelming. She will discuss how to clear energy-zapping clutter and gain a fresh perspective on possessions so that individuals can create a more relaxing, safe, and comfortable home life.

Senior Community Day with Steph McNally, Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Cell Phone But Were Afraid to Ask
Thursday, July 26 at 9:30 am – 2 pm

Learn how to increase your tech skills from texting, to taking and sharing photos, to using video calls, and more! Come for our “tech check” with Steph, whom you may already know as one of our regular volunteers on our community days. Steph hails from Australia and comes from a background of studying, selling and occasionally trying to write printed books, but has since learned to stop worrying and love the Internet (or at least parts of it).

Bring your mobile phone and we’ll see you there!

The Rev. Canon Nina Pickerrell is honored to support the senior program. She would love to hear from you with any questions, suggestions or to reserve a spot on the next retreat. Please find her contact information below.
