SAN ANTONIO – Senior citizens and other adults from San Antonio and beyond, gathered for Pilgrim Center of Hope’s Catholic Seniors’ Conference on May 4, 2019 at St. George Maronite Catholic Church’s Phoenician Ballroom.
Pilgrim Center of Hope offered resources for seniors including Mass celebrated by the ministry’s chaplain, Fr. Patrick Martin, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, ministry and vendor exhibitors with resources for physical, mental, and spiritual health, and much more.
During morning Mass, Fr. Patrick Martin encouraged those present to trust that the all-loving God is present to them in all circumstances, especially times of illness, loneliness, difficulty, and suffering.
Messages of joy and hope were offered in presentations by Jeannette Santos, LPC, Fr. Pat Martin, and Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox.
- Recordings of the first 2 presentations, as well as photos of the day’s events, are available to view on the CSC website.
- The Foxes’ presentation also drew adults of various ages, as it was the second in a Saturday morning Meet the Master series being offered by Pilgrim Center of Hope and open to all throughout the rest of 2019.
Seniors walked away encouraged and renewed in spirit, ready to continue their journeys in hope. On evaluation forms, seniors thanked Pilgrim Center of Hope for offering this experience especially for them.
