St. Andrew’s Gregarious Elders

Sages are a lively group of parishioners, 50 years or over, who come together to promote activities that provide spiritual and social fellowship for their members.

Our monthly meeting is on the third Monday of each month at 11:00 am and features a guest speaker or entertainment and raffles, door prizes, and refreshments.

Many activities and trips are planned. We have BBQs and parties and we go to museums, gardens, theaters, and historical places, which usually includes lunch in a nice restaurant or an overnight stay. Travel is usually by bus which provides another fun time for all.

We have a SAGES Mass on the second Saturday of each month at 4:00 pm. A large number of members feel blessed by the closeness we feel for each other as we celebrate this Mass together.

The dues are $10.00 per person per year. There are no fundraising or personal interest activities permitted.

We invite all registered parishioners to join us. Please contact the parish office at (504) 393-2334, and Karen Niklaus will return your call.
