Our Elders group at Newman is made up of people who are in their late '50's and older. It provides monthly gatherings (on the second Wednesday of each month) for people to share a pot-luck lunch and discuss some topic of the day. There is usually a presentation by someone with information about a program or service helpful to people in their senior years. The program generally includes time for prayer together, some presentation of information of interest and helpful to people in their senior or retirement years, introductions that help people get to know one another, and a time for sharing concerns and needs that allow the group to share helpful approaches to problems. The group has done activities outside Newman: for example attending concerts, touring exhibitions, and hearing presentations about programs offered by agencies in the local area. Elders welcomes any Newman member who qualifies in terms of age and commitment to the faith and community efforts we celebrate at the Newman Center.
