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.
Once or twice a year, we enjoy a retreat in beautiful Healdsburg. The next retreat takes place on Tuesday, October 16 through Thursday, October 18. 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.
Community Days occur on the fourth Thursday of each month (unless affected by a holiday) from 10 am – 2 pm. Enjoy a continental breakfast from 10 to 10:30 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.
Senior Community Day with Steph McNally, Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Cell Phone But Were Afraid to Ask
Thursday, July 26 at 10 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.
