Saint Peter Senior Ministry

a work of love ...

The Camden County Division of Senior and Disabled Services is prepared to ensure that no senior goes hungry during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All residents previously enrolled in the Camden County Nutrition Program have automatically begun receiving home-delivery of meals this week, and seniors in need of meals – for any reason – can call the Division at (856) 374-MEAL to make immediate arrangements.

Senior and disabled residents can also call the Camden County Citizen Relief Emergency Worker (CREW) hotline if they are struggling to acquire essential supplies, prescription medication, travel to or from a medical appointment, or other critically important assistance. Senior and disabled residents, as well as neighbors and family of those in need, can call (856) 858-3220 to receive assistance.

Because of the financial concerns, we will be reducing the Senior Center Ministry from five days to three. Beginning on Monday, June 3, the Senior Center will be open only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the standard time 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Bobbie Bradley and her staff will continue to minister at the center. Bobbie will also assume a new position in the parish: Director of Development. In this new role, Bobbie will be initiating some new projects which I trust you will all support. Should the financial profile of the parish improve substantially, it is always possible that the Senior Center could return to a 5-day schedule.
