Rev. Hugh Lagan, SMA, Psy.D., explores the secrets of healthy aging for clergy and religious men and women.
The world is undergoing a dramatic demographic shift. In 2020, for the first time in history, the number of people age 65 and over will outnumber children age five and under. While the global Catholic church has faced a similar “graying tsunami,” a significant majority of older priests and religious continue to show remarkable resilience and sustained health. Research suggests this orientation towards positive aging has less to do with an individual’s background or family history than with the specific lifestyle choices they make.
