Crossroads welcomes parishioners and friends age 50+. Join Crossroads for quality, caring relationships. Crossroads is a dynamic, accepting and mutually supportive group of parishioners and friends over 50, who come together to share activities and deepen friendships. Our goals are to have fun, learn with and from each other and to share in social, creative, cultural and spiritual activities. The group encourages participation and sees itself as a bridge-builder, making connections with other groups within the parish and community.
