"Growing Older With Grace And Humor," free program with Sr. Eileen Collins

“Growing Older with Grace and Humor,” presented by Ursuline Sister Eileen Mary Collins, Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 10 am is the first in a series of four, free weekly sessions at the Holy Redeemer Senior Facility. 885 Ruple Rd.

Sr. Eileen has been a teacher, a college professor, a psychologist and a lifelong fun-lover. She focuses on the fact that every age can be a good age. The first session will explore some myths about aging and the following three sessions will challenge seniors' attitudes about their later years and will provide some new ways of thinking. “The emphasis,” Sr. Eileen explained, “will be on growing older vs. just getting older.”

The other sessions will be on Sept. 18, Sep. 25, Oct. 2 at the Holy Redeemer Senior facility.

The session are sponsored by the newly-formed Collinwood Neighborhood Catholic Ministries, (CNCM) a collaborative group of nuns from different communities and their lay co-workers. 

“Come and meet your neighbors and the Sisters organizing the programs. Add your voice in designing what would help the Collinwood area and bring services here that would enrich the lives of the community,” encouraged Sr. Mary Ellen Brinovec, coordinator of the CNCM.
