We are looking for an individual leader or co-leaders to coordinate the Prime Timers Ministry (ministry for parishioners aged 65+). This very important ministry has been founded upon the pillars of Faith, Service, and Fellowship. The ministry leader’s role includes creating and executing a calendar that encompasses activities which build upon those 3 pillars. He/She does this through the following ways:
Plan for a theme/speaker for a monthly “Lunch and Learn” held in Upper Room
where members bring a bagged lunch and listen to a speaker or participate in a specific activity. Examples include learning about creating a will/funeral planning to assembling care packages for Mercy Care. Water and tea or lemonade are provided.
Plan one outing a month. Successful events in the past include trips to the symphony or to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, or drive around to see Christmas lights during the Christmas season.
Host a themed dinner, usually held in Moylan Hall, every 2 months. In the past, we have held a murder mystery dinner, dinner and a movie, and Kentucky Derby party and dinner.
The leader of this ministry also stays aware of and plans activities that include other parish ministries. For example, Prime Timers works with Parish Life to do a St. Patrick’s Day themed Bingo before St. Patrick’s Day. The Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts may have badges of service to earn so you can collaborate on projects with them as well.
