Life Ascending is a Catholic movement of the Church, open to all men and women who have reached a ‘certain age’ in life. Encouraging them to be messengers of peace and calm, particularly for those who are still unsure and too fearful to go out and about once more. Our blessed Lord is with us and by studying His Holy Word, together, we can find answers to the difficulties and problems that face us and what He is asking of us at this stage of life.
“Let us reflect on old age,” Pope Francis called out at The General Audience in Paul VI Hall in May 2022
“If grandparents fall back on their melancholies, young people will look even more to their smartphones,” Francis warned. “The screen may stay on, but life will die out before its time.”
Every Life Ascending group will be slightly different yet each will embrace the key elements of Friendship Spirituality and Mission. Members really look forward to seeing their friends from the parish or beyond. Christians from other churches are always very welcome Looking at a Gospel reading or the Psalms will be a valuable source for sharing, discussion and discernment.
