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 onTuesday, October 23 through Thursday, October 25. 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 Tracee Zyla
Thursday, September 27 at 10 am – 2 pm
Outreach Administrator (and Seniors with Grace regular staff member) Tracee Zyla presents TED Talks, Take 2! Tracee will continue to explore online TED Talks with our seniors following a positively received introductory session last month. We will explore various subjects related to aging, followed by discussion during which our seniors have the opportunity to share their own experiences.
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.
