Young at Heart

St. ANTHONY’s “Young At Heart Club” was formed in 2013 to provide St. Anthony senior citizens and seniors from surrounding parishes who are age 55 and older a variety of spiritual, cultural, social and intellectual experiences while interacting within our Orthodox Christian environment.

Each month we have a special activity. Guest speakers, who are specialists in their fields, discuss a variety of topics, including legal matters, care of the elderly, chair yoga, finances and various other subjects of interest to our members. We also invite entertainers , such as dancers and singers to give live performances. Refreshments are served after each meeting. We sponsor at least one coffee hour. We also lend support and provide manpower to our church programs throughout the year. We go on day trips to various recreational, historical, and local entertainment sites.

Our most important function is to keep in touch with all senior citizens at St. Anthony to let them know they are not forgotten during an illness or disability.

Young at Heart meets mostly on the first Thursday of each month (except in July and August) at 1:00pm in the Ivy Room at St. Anthony Church.
