The mission of CSS is rooted in the mission of the Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis, to affirm the profound dignity and value of all human persons. We believe human life must be respected from conception to natural death.
We respond to the example of Christ, the servant of all, in our mission serving the needs of seniors in both body and soul.
We are committed to the Church's preferential love for the poor. We help the underserved with compassion and responsible stewardship.
CSS Affiliates Reaching Out To Support Parishes and Seniors - Catholic Senior Connection
Genevieve (not pictured) is a senior in our archdiocese. She is 78 years old, a widow and has been a devout Catholic her whole life. She has served her parish in several capacities, sending her children through the parish school, and is a proud grandmother.
She has spent her life in selfless giving to her family, her parish and her neighbors. She is part of that generation that made America great.
Her children have moved away, due to the ebb and flow of careers, and she is increasingly isolated from her past friends and parish community, not by choice, but rather because of the increasing limitations of age. More >
