The Parish is forming a new, informal group to provide advice, support and social connection for men who are retired or facing retirement. Regular meetings will provide information and resources on how to transition from work to other fulfilling pursuits and on taking care of our physical and mental health as we age. It will also provide a place to meet other men facing similar changes.
The first meeting will take place on Saturday, May 7 at 9 am in the Parish Hall. For more information contact email@example.com.
