Group of older adultsALOA sponsors and works with other organizations on a variety of events for active older adults. These gatherings provide opportunities for spiritual growth, fellowship and fun in relaxed, inter-Lutheran settings.

LUTHERHOSTELS are national events held in various locations throughout the U.S. These events are planned by local committees and are often held in retreat-like settings for 4-6 days. Upcoming Lutherhostels

SENIORFESTS and ALOAFESTS are regional events, often co-sponsored by synods, districts, seminaries and other institutions. These events are also planned by local committees and are generally single day events.

Currently, our schedule includes an unforgettable 11-day journey to Italy and the Oberammergau Passion Play. Visit cities and sites of significance to Christians all over the world, plus take part in the once-every decade performance of the Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany. More on the Oberammergau Passion Play trip

RETREATS – Spend an enriching weekend at a camp or conference center exploring God’s calling in the second half of life. Regional events planned by local groups can focus on spiritual topics or offer intergenerational opportunities, such as Grandparent & Grandchild weekends.
