St. Mary’s Senior Outreach

St. Mary of the Lake has a Coordinator of Pastoral and Senior Ministries on staff.  This role supports the spiritual and social needs of senior parishioners of the parish through a continuum of care approach:

  • Spiritual Care in the community is provided upon request. This is for those who are unable to attend Mass due to health issues.
  • Senior Connections is a team of parishioners who make regular contact with those who are 65 and older.
  • Senior Mass and Lunch is planned two times each year, in the fall and spring.
  • Grief Ministries for all parishioners who suffer a loss of a loved one through death.
  • Prayer Line teams pray for the needs of the parish.
  • The Gathering is a respite program that provides four hours of brain-stimulation activities and social engagement to adults experiencing early-to-mid stage memory loss allowing caregivers a much needed break.
  • End of Life Seminar is presented annually to educate and provide resources to seniors.
  • Senior housing resources available.
  • Anointing of the sick and elderly on the first Thursdays of each month.
