SENIORS

MCBC Seniors are a faith community passionate about positive aging in body, soul and spirit, and our activities together revolve around those themes such as:

  • Overcoming loneliness 

  • Finding community and building relationships 

  • How to deal with health and financial issues 

  • Cultivating a vibrant spirituality and mental health in the later years 

  • Ways to prevent and identify elder abuse and protocols of response 

  • Assisting others to find meaning and purpose in life 

  • Discovering and sharpening our gifts and experiences, and where we can volunteer to serve the wider community. 

  • Passing on life wisdom and making inter-generational life contributions to the next generations

  • To mobilize baby boomers for voluntary mission engagement and projects- both in NZ and around the world.
