With the ancient is wisdom, and in length of years, understanding.     - Job 12:12


  • Every hour, 330 Americans reach the age of 60.Now “baby boomers” (born 1946 to 1964) will be turning 65. Ask anyone - these are not your grandma’s sixties and retirement no longer means what it did then!
  • In the next few years, the age 85+ population will nearly double. Already the 85+ age group is the fastest growing segment of the population! An estimated 214,000 Americans will be 100 or older this year, and by 2050, that number could exceed 4,200,000.
  • At the marker age 85+ there is increased risk for frailty, depending on an individual’s heredity, chance and lifestyle. However, with a little help, a majority of elders remain independent throughout a long life.
  • In parishes, a substantial percentage of leadership, presence, gifts and services are provided by older parishioners, the fastest growing age group everywhere. They are wisdom keepers, a vital resource, a living bridge between generations to come and those who have gone before.
  • What would your church look like without them?

In1980, President Carter’s proclamation declared May as Older Americans Month, a time to celebrate persons age 65+ through ceremonies, events and public recognition. See www.aoa.gov for Older American’s Act information and programs for older adults.
