St. James Widows and Widowers began meeting in 1991, chaired by Steve Dewhurst. He was joined not long afterwards by Fran Gros. Early programs included sing-alongs, talks by grief counselors, programs dealing with money management for widows, musical performances by parish members, even a concert by kindergarteners. And always refreshments!
Then the organization changed from a widowed group to a senior group, welcoming anyone over 50. The seniors plan monthly themed events which are usually held on the third Thursday of the month.

Come celebrate spring with the St. James Seniors Young at Heart Group in Heller Hall on Thursday, May 19th from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Pizza and beverages will be provided. Please contribute a salad or dessert.
Our guest speaker will be Fr. John Paul on his unplanned excursion in Bangladesh in January.
Please donate $5 for the meal and bring another $5 for the fundraiser game. The prize has a $10 value. We still need to raise $2,000 to cover bus and theatre tickets for the October trip to Lancaster, PA. RSVP to Cae Gilley at 703-533-3845 or Mary Anne Stallings at 703-237-1768 by May 17th.
