The St. Maria Goretti "Carefree Years" group was formed in the late 1960s to offer social, educational and religious opportunities for all members of the parish who are over 55 years old: single, married, divorced or widowed. Notices of activities are published in the Sunday bulletin.

Cards & Other Games every third Tuesday of the month at 1:30 p.m. in the church conference room. Bring a friend (doesn't have to be SMG member) and join us! Provide a snack to share and your own beverage; we’re having a good time!
