Our goal is to enhance the lives of senior adults by ministering to their physical, mental, spiritual, educational and social needs. We we offer many programs not only to the senior adults of our parish, but to those in the wider community as well. If you would like more information or to volunteer, or if you know someone who might benefit from any of our programs, please contact the Office of Parish Life.
Friendship & Birthday Cards
Volunteers send hundreds of cards each year to our homebound senior adults. A personal note is written on each card to offer a positive, uplifting message. New volunteers are welcomed.
On Wednesdays at 10am Senior Adults gather to play cards, dominos or board games for a couple of hours in the Parish Center Atrium. It's a great way to get out of the house and socialize.
Experienced volunteers help parishioners with minor tasks and home repairs. We are always looking for handy men and women who would like to volunteer
Hot Meals Delivery
Hot meals prepared by the Oklahoma County Senior County Nutrition Center are delivered to approximately twenty shut-in individuals each weekday by our volunteers. We are always in need of parishioners who want to deliver meals on a weekly, bi-weekly or substitute basis.
In fellowship with Christ the King School, this ministry unites senior adults of the parish with young students to enrich both generations.
The Parish Star program pairs senior adults with students in Kindergarten through the second grade. Seniors and their students exchange greeting cards for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter and sit together at Mass on New Life Day in May.
Junior high students participate in the annual Life Story Project, in which they interview a senior adult and write their life story for inclusion in a specially published book. The stories are fascinating and often humorous, and the experience invariably leads to a greater appreciate of each generation for the other. The Life Story Book has been featured in the Sunday Oklahoman. Read Carla Hinton's article here.
Liturgies for the Homebound
Sunday Liturgies are copied onto CD's and mailed or delivered to shut-ins or anyone who cannot attend Mass because of illness or surgery. We even provide a CD player if necessary. Homebound persons may also watch a live stream of the 10am Mass on Sundays HERE.
Volunteers drive the Christ the King bus to provide a ride for parishioners to Game Day, the Senior Adult Ministries Luncheon, weekend Liturgies, and other parish functions. Our van is equipped with a wheelchair lift.
