St. Francis Adult Ministry Presents

A Workshop presented by Sandra Nelson and Tom Pinkel

Saturday, November 4 - 9:00 am - Noon in Brunsman Hall

8:30 Coffee & Muffins

Normal aging is associated with some types of physical and mental declines as as well as increased risk for certain diseases. Yet for many people these changes are fairly subtle and don't undermine their ability to lead stimulating and fulfilling lives. In fact, many aspects of our mental and spiritual lives may even improve with age. Together we will:

  • Explore the latest research on the role of diet and exercise

  • Distinguish between normal aging of the brain and diseases of the brain

  • Discover the brain's role in devising cognitive coping strategies and promoting emotional well being

  • Understand the brain's role in the evolution of our spirituality over our lifetime

  • Accept and embrace our mortality

  • Visualize the future to make the most of the rest of our lives

St. Francis Step and Breakfast Ministry - Your Spirit and Welcoming Presence is needed

Step Ministry VolunteerThis very special ministry is in need of volunteers. Our Step Ministry provides a safe, peaceful and private place for our guests to sleep each night at the Parish Center courtyard. This ministry is rooted in scripture and responds to the call to welcome strangers, provide shelter to the wanderer, and not turn away from the needs of others.

As a Step Minister you would have the opportunity to serve as a welcoming presence for our Step guests as they arrive in the evening or, as a Breakfast Minister, help to provide a simple prepared breakfast before they leave to face the challenges of their day. The time commitment is 5:45 pm to 7:30 pm for the Step Ministry OR 5:30 am to 7:00 am for the Breakfast Ministry. Most Step Ministers commit to one evening a week, and Breakfast Ministers for two mornings a month. However, we are happy to try to create a schedule that works for you! Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of the Step/Breakfast Ministry family. We would love to have you join us.
