“While we are called to holiness, to ‘ever more intimate union with Christ (CCC 2014),’ spiritual concerns often assume greater importance for older persons.” This Statement from the USCCB’s Blessings of Age: Pastoral Message on Growing Older Within the Faith Community, acknowledges the unique and intensifying spiritual needs of older adults.

In an effort to equip parish leadership to better understand and meet these needs, we are pleased to offer a growing body of resources.
