General Announcements

Most of us, like you and me, inch our way through life, sure on the one hand that it will never end, certain on the other that it will surely be ending for us soon. . . .It is at moments of such quiet consciousness that it is important to come face-to-face with what it means to age, to be older, to be old, to become an elder in society. Age must be no impediment to the magnet for life in us. But life is not about breathing only. Life is about becoming more than we are, about being all that we can be. Whatever we are doing, however old we are, wherever we fall on the social-economic scale. –Sr. Joan Chittister Each Sunday from 9:00—10:00 AM, various mentors will lead a series of faith formation sessions using Joan Chittister’s The Gift of Years. Each week the group will read one of the brief essays from the book, then journal their responses to the reading. Time will be set aside for the opportunity to share thoughts with the group. It is not necessary to purchase the book or to read the book beforehand, though please do bring a notebook or journal for writing your thoughts and responses. These essays are rich in spiritual wisdom and encouragement. If you are aware you will get old, if you are getting old, and, of course, if you are old already…this is for you. No pre-registration or sign-up; just show up at 9:00 AM each Sunday.
