Our Mission

Our mission is "Changing lives for God in Christ" by addressing the unmet needs of our senior parishioners whenever possible by volunteer parishioners. The Senior ministry offers various programs to SJD parishioners: One-on-one visits, home maintenance and repair, The Gathering (care for those with early dementia), trips, bridge, information, referrals, and consulting.

 

Seniors Prayer

 

I am running to where I don't want to go

Running with all my might

Yet I know it is where I must go

Lord, please hold me tight
