Aging & Senior Planning

Sharing good wishes

The Episcopal Church in CT has an Aging and Life Planning Committee that can be a resource for ministry with older adults. It also offers a regular celebration of those who have been married for 50 years or more. The Committee is overseen by Bishop Laura Ahrens.
