    Welcome to Carmelite Monastery, Margao, Goa     

Senior Citizens Club

Senior Citizens are a group of around 40 who are enrolled and meet every Sunday , from 5.30 to 7.00p.m. It animated from the wisdom of our Superior and Ex-Provincial Fr. Archibald Gonsalves, who felt that the senior citizens should meet to share their life experiences to overcome their loneliness and contribute towards getting involved in various activities of the Church by giving rich mature suggestions that evolve through their experiences of viewing life through the past years. They also conduct the 11.15 am Mass on every last Sunday of the month. Most of them get involved in planning the activities which differ every week. They start with invoking the Holy Spirit's guidance and a short prayer which is followed by any thought provoking video or article. We also celebrate the birthdays of the week and pray for them in a special way. After that they play games , have a quiz on various topics , discuss about some recent news regarding health related issues . They also have a talent show where they either sing or play instruments or display any talent or reveal their past experiences. Most of them enjoy speaking about their contribution in life and revealing stories about their family life and children. Father Archie also comes to give a short reflection at the end. It is really a pleasing day where all of them look forward to coming.
