The Irondequoit Senior Ministries (ISM) is a collaborative ministry of Saint Kateri Parish and St. Ann's Community in Irondequoit, New York.
We believe every person:
Has dignity, worth and value.
Exists within a family, social and faith community.
Has a need to feel connected to the larger community
Has the right to make individual choices, while recognizing those choices impact the community.
Therefore, we as the Irondequoit Senior Ministries will work to:
Ensure that seniors maintain a connection to the larger community.
Make it possible for people to make informed choices.
Work with seniors and their families to meet the needs of aging.
Responding to Christ's call to love God and one another, Saint Kateri Parish and St. Ann's Community have joined together to serve the needs of the senior population in Irondequoit. Our collaborative mission is to provide comprehensive regional senior ministries by, with and for seniors, so that our churches may bring the presence of the Lord to the people of our time and place.
