SOAR: Seniors On A Rampage
We have an active, seniors ministry with monthly activities involving field trips, fun, learning, fellowship, food and care for one another.
SOAR plans regular events for the seniors of the Cathedral and surrounding community, typically on the second Thursday of the Month. All are welcome because it's not for seniors only. Our parish nurse usually comes along too.
For more information, please contact Basil Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org
