Senior Care and Advocacy

Grace Cathedral has a lively community of seniors who contribute enormously to the life of the cathedral. While seniors are part of all our ministries, we are also home to a dedicated ministry to seniors, Seniors with Grace.


We are looking to expand our work with seniors by providing more community opportunities and especially in focusing on the particular needs of LGBTQ seniors. Grace provides advocacy for seniors in care and financial support in a limited number of individual cases. For more information on our ministry to seniors, please contact the Rev. Canon Nina Pickerrell at or (415) 749-6391.

Community Days

Community Days occur on the fourth Thursday of each month (unless affected by a holiday) from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Enjoy a warm breakfast from 10 to 10:30 a.m., followed by Bible study and a topical presentation. At 12:10 p.m., we gather for Holy Eucharist in the Chapel of Grace and then return to the Dining Room for a catered luncheon. We conclude our day with the sharing of senior grocery care bags.

Health and Wellness

Our programs include a health and wellness component, and trained medical staff are on hand to provide basic assessment for seniors. From time to time, we also host health-specific events. See photos from our 2018 health fair.

50+ Anniversary Evensong

Couples are invited to renew their vows to each other during the service and the bishop will pronounce God’s blessing. Our next 50+ Anniversary Evensong on February 10, 2019 at 2 p.m.
