November 2006 report

Seniors

The chief catholic priest (archbishop) of Lithuania paid a visit to one of our seniors’ parties in November. All of our elderly were completely astounded by this.

Also, this month we had two music bands perform for us: one was general style, the other one- Lithuanian folk music with its own musicians.
There was dancing, songs, poems, games…

It was so fulfilling though not easy to hear one of our elderly women say to another: “These parties of ours is the only thing that keeps me going…”

The other good news is that the spiritual aspect of our activities is not fading out to say the least: not only do we read the Bible during the events, but also have prayers! It is so uncommon in such a predominantly catholic country & especially with elderly people around.

Here’s our seniors’ event schedule for November:
1. November 5th (Sunday) – Seniors’ party
2. November 12th (Sunday) – outing to Organ concert
3. November 13th (Monday) – outing to drama theatre performance
4. November 19th (Sunday) – Seniors’ birthday
5. November 24-25th (Friday-Saturday) – Food Bank
