FOREVER YOUNG

A Ministry created specifically for the “Mature Adult” parishioners who are 50, 60 and 70+ years of age.

The mission of the Forever Young Ministry is to INSPIRE the Mature Adult Members of St. Mary Magdalene parish and community to Live Life with Purpose to Love, Serve and Revere God as they continue to mature in life and spirituality; thus,

›Creating a fresh image of those who have passed their 50th birthday, for within them we find a deep pool of resources and skill, vitality and usefulness;

›Creating a sense of self-worth, integrity, dignity, and spirituality in order to LIVE life fully in their service to God and to one another; and

›Creating opportunities that encourage and edify the mature adult to be productive and spiritually fruitful, while building relationships with compatible individuals that will value and respect each other as Forever Young.
