The seniors' group is a very active group of parishioners ages 55 and older who meet on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 10 A.M. in the Parish Hall. The meetings begin with a brief business meeting followed by fellowship, cards, and games. Members are asked to bring a sack lunch. The group takes several trips a year, both in and out of state. Joining the Seniors Group is an excellent opportunity to relax, have fun and meet other parishioners.
