Seniors Sunday

The Historic Trinity Senior Ministry presented a "Seniors Sunday" on Sunday, August 9, 2015, at all three Worship Services. President Ronald Regan issued a proclamation declaring August 21 as the National Senior Citizen Day. Senior citizen members from our parish read the litany at the services.
This year's honoree is Barbara Asmus who was presented her 2015 award at the 9:30 a.m. Worship Service. Many thanks to Barbara for all the things she does at Historic Trinity.

National Senior Citizens Day

National Senior Citizens Day honors our elderly population. On this day, we care encouraged to recognize and show appreciation for the value and contribution of elderly to home, family and society. President Ronald Reagan, in his Presidential Proclamation (August 19, 1988), said, “For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older.” Reach out to our seniors as vital members of the family of God. As Moses wrote in Leviticus 19:32: “Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God.” Learn from those who have traveled farther down the highway of life: it is a path we will all walk someday. “How far you go in life,” George Washington Carver taught, “depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life, you will have been all of these.” God Bless our Seniors! May we all help them enjoy their very special day! And, remember to thank them for all their many contributions through the years and in the present.
