Members of the St. Charles Senior Community Center in South Philadelphia recently proved that you can make your own rules about fashion — and about getting older.
More than 100 seniors gathered for the center’s fifth annual “White Party and Garden Cabaret” on Sept. 21, enjoying an afternoon of dining and dancing in their best white attire.
The nationally accredited center, one of four operated by archdiocesan Catholic Housing and Community Services, provides hundreds of seniors with opportunities for socialization, exercise, personal development and nutritional support.
As one attendee asked with a wink, “Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?”
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
