The 50 + group of St. Helena was established to launch six goals which address the dignity and concerns of the entire person, mind and spirit:
Awareness: Establishing and fostering the role of older adults in the parish and community, providing training in leadership, promoting public relations, holding membership drives, helping members recognize their talents & service potential for the parish & community.
Continuing education: religious topics, health topics, crime prevention.
Social/recreational activities: exhibits, talent shows, parties, bake sale dinners, older American's month and covered dish lunches, games, bingo, cards, sports, picnics, crafts, and tour.
Advocacy: keeping informed about political candidates on issues, voting at election time, writing letters to state and national legislators etc.
Encourage self-help and independence.
Provide for development of leadership and coordination among the seniors
The 50+ group is an organization for, with and by seniors, the group offers support services throughout the parish, the Archdiocese of San Antonio, and other agencies as may be available, possible and appropriate.
The 50 Plus Group meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 11:30 am, in the Dolan Center or other location as determined by the group
We would like to have all seniors participate in the seniors program and need volunteers to fill all positions
