Senior Ministry

"May he also be to you a restorer of life and a sustainer of your old age;" Ruth 4:15a

Mission: To build faith through the refreshing enjoyment of the company of others; to have fun and learn new things.

Our seniors make up the group we call Elderversity. Specifically through Elderversity, St. Michael responds to the needs of seniors. We want to help seniors enjoy these years, while showing love for others as Christ has loved us.
