When the time comes to transition into a senior living community, many wonder how they will maintain their faith practices amidst such a life change. No matter what religion you align with, faith may play an important role in your everyday living, as it offers a sense of community, support, fellowship, and more. New Horizons retirement community holds on-site religious services for Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant faiths, allowing residents to maintain their spiritual traditions and worship patterns and connect with others. To help you learn more about the benefits of living in a senior living community that embraces all faiths, the experts at New Horizons are pleased to share the information below.

The Benefits Of A Senior Living Community That Embraces Faiths

No Transportation Required To Attend Services

When you choose to reside in a senior living community that offers services and group meetings, you rid yourself of the need to find transportation. When services are held on the same campus as your living space, it is convenient and easy to attend your chosen group meeting or service. At New Horizons, our community is one of the few in the area to offer regular Catholic Mass and Protestant and Jewish services, all on site. We do so to make it easy for our residents to feel connected to each other and their religion. Many of our residents were previously actively involved in a religious-based community, and we want them to enjoy that valued experience  at New Horizons at Marlborough.

Establishes A Strong Sense Of Community

Entering a retirement community can be an adjustment. However, faith-based services open doors for new connections and relationships to be made, providing you with a warm community. Faith-based and religious programming offer our new and existing residents a meaningful experience that will assist in making them comfortable with the change. At New Horizons, we have a new regularly visiting priest, Fr. Carmichael, who holds our Catholic Mass. Fr. Carmichael has expressed in his homilies how welcoming, inviting, and happy the residents at New Horizons are. We welcome you to experience the smiles and joy of our residents by scheduling a tour of our community so you, too, can experience the faith offerings we provide.

Allows You To Continue Your Faith And Stay Connected To The Church

A senior living community that offers faith practices like New Horizons at Marlborough may also allow residents to volunteer in various ways, helping them feel even more connected with their faith. One of our volunteer groups oversees the chapel’s activities, helping residents get involved in setting up for service, serving as Eucharistic ministers, assisting with music, and more. Other opportunities include volunteering around the community, which helps residents feel in touch with their values.
