Staying active in retirement
Resting easy in retirement is not on the hearts and minds of many seniors across the archdiocese – and the Catholic Voice found five representative couples who continue to give to their families, parishes and communities.
These stories and photos take a look at seniors preparing the altar for Mass, mowing and maintaining the parish cemetery, volunteering in family ministry, greeting at church and leading the rosary before daily Mass, among other activities.
As one of the seniors said: "I feel someone at this age, you should be doing things like that. It’s a good feeling. It’s what the good Lord wants you to do."
