Elderwise is open to anyone of any age and provides opportunities for people to come together and enjoy one another's company. The group works to integrate the generations within parish life, as well as to enrich our spiritual life through life-long learning.
Elderwise members meet from noon to 2:00 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month (unless noted otherwise). Local outings are planned for some of the summer months. In October through May, meetings are held in the Morrison Room at Trinity and vegetarian lunches are catered at a cost of $10 per person (provided a minimum of 20 people sign up).
