    We at Saint Patrick’s have plans to form a seniors’ group. The circumstances we now find ourselves in have changed how we may approach this in the short term.  The group would be open to anyone fifty-five (55) years of age and older. Our goal is to stay connected and create a community where we can share in our thoughts, feelings and experiences when having some fun and learning about important aspects of our lives that are real today.
