Seniors Adult Ministry

Our ministry serves the needs of the senior adult members of SJAE Church and the surrounding community. We want to ensure that no senior is lost or forgotten.  We provide direction and support for the spiritual, emotional, social and physical well-being of all seniors. Our ministry is supported by Catholic Charities Hawaii (CCH) who provides training and insurance coverage for team members.  We identify for the pastor all senior adults who require attention. Our goal is to provide counsel, comfort, and referral as needed. We escort seniors to medical appointments; the bank, grocery shopping or we assist seniors by shopping for them (by list) and by picking up their medications. Our lives are richer when we share, and that great inner joy comes from helping others. Truly giving from the heart fills your life with joy and nourishes your soul. True joy lies in the act of giving without an expectation of receiving something in return. We believe that our best days of making a difference are still ahead! Senior Adult Ministry offers opportunities to touch lives and make an impact for Christ.
