We are aware, with an aging population, that there are some in our communities who are wrestling with old age.
At a time when everything seems to be moving forward and changing with increasing rapidity, some struggle to keep up, while others develop medical conditions, such as dementia, that profoundly affect their capabilities.
We are launching Purple Praise! a monthly worship service at St Mary's Goosnargh to encourage those wrestling with old age, growing old gracefully or disgracefully, and those who care for them, in their engagement with God.
This will happen on the 2nd Tuesday of every month and will run from 11.00am to 12.00 noon, starting with refreshments and ending with a simple Communion Service.
'When I am old I shall wear purple .......'
