Boomers Plus (formerly Joy with Others)

Boomers Plus is a ministry for older parishioners at Our Lady of Refuge. It began over 25 years ago as the "Joy with Others" group as a way to bring parish seniors together for fellowship, social activities, prayer and service.  Today Boomers Plus includes those from the Baby Boomer generation, veterans, and older generations of parishioners looking for an opportunity to socialize and enjoy some fellowship.


On the second Saturday of each month Boomers Plus sponsors a fabulous potluck luncheon in the parish cafeteria. People gather at noontime, each bringing asalad, main dish or dessert to share with others. Following prayer, everyone enjoys a great meal and fellowship with old and new friends. When the luncheon is over, tables are cleared and the group begins playing Bingo. At some luncheons there are guest speakers or special entertainment – dancers, singers, etc. Please see the Events for upcoming meetings.


Boomers Plus has also sponsored weekend bus trips to Laughlin, Nevada – usually in October and again in late January. This gives another opportunity for older parishioners to enjoy each other’s company during an enjoyable outing.


Boomers Plus extend their loving concern to others as well. When they hear that parishioners or friends in the community have experienced sickness or death in the family, Boomers Plus volunteers send cards, notes and phone calls of support. They also give donations to worthy ministries and charities.


All older parishioners are invited to join Boomers Plus.  Follow notices in the Parish Bulletin to know when the luncheons are scheduled. Simply come on the day of the luncheon, bring a dish to share, meet some wonderful new friends and enjoy the company of old friends.
