A recipe for fitness, food, faith at Grace Church Van Vorst | Faith Matters

Scientific research shows that the best "medicine" for senior citizens' health is any kind of exercise that gets blood flowing faster through the brain. So last Thursday when I entered the Grace Senior Center for Healthy Living, I met the healthiest 65 senior citizens in Jersey City.


They were doing their daily group exercise routine. Throughout the week, they will also do Yoga, Tai Chi and Zumba. Antoinette Mabry, 68, loves it because, "I have trouble with my legs." The retired Newark public school teacher has been coming, first in the summers and now all year round to the programs sponsored at Grace Church Van Vorst on Third and Erie Streets for 15 years.


On Saturday and Sunday, Grace Community Services (GCS), the umbrella organization that sponsors the programs, also feeds breakfast to 100 people each day.


Exercise and good nutrition make for healthy living and there is no better example than Joyce Davison, who founded these programs 25 years ago. Next Friday, Oct. 21, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop and Congressman Donald Payne will co-chair a birthday celebration in honor of Davison's 80th birthday.



The event will also thank Davison for her devotion to Grace Church. "That Joyce has pretty much single handedly kept it running for over 20 years is testament to what a talented powerhouse she is," said Rev. Laurie Jean Wurm, the rector of the church for the last three and one half years.

The former Quaker, who had experience in conflict resolution with two organizations, "Alternative to Violence," and "Children's Creative Response to Violence," Davison has a Ph.D. in Psychology. Worshipping at Grace for 35 years, she once mentioned to the former rector, Rev. Scott Kallstrom, about first starting the breakfast program and he said, "Go ahead." And she did.


Then five years later, she again asked Kallstrom about a senior program. Once again, he said, "Go ahead." Helen Rogers, 90, has been coming since it started. She belongs to St. Anthony's Church and lives a few blocks away on Seventh Street. When I introduced myself to her, she said, "The pastor from Holy Rosary?!" Msgr. Gerard M. Santora died 11 years ago and would have been well over 100 today. I was deflated but then thought I must look good for 110. The retired crossing guard got a chuckle out of my response.


Rogers enjoys the senior company at the program and the daily lunch, which only costs $1.25. You could see that the seniors come from all over the city, but mostly Downtown, for the other free programs. They get cooking lessons, do line dancing, learn to quilt, and do art. Mabry said she learned how to mix colors and do portraits and pictures. They listen to music and go on long and day trips.


The program costs $45,000 annually to run and the city gives a $22,000 grant. They pay rent to Grace Church. Among the other sponsors and participating institutions are the Jersey City Council, Department of Recreation and Senior Affairs, the Hudson County Office on Aging, the Jersey City Medical Center and Palisades General Hospital. Next Tuesday, there will be "Haircuts by Esther."

The following day there will be a program on breast cancer awareness. On the 25th, the JC Medical Center will teach about asthma. The next day there is a trip to Demarest Farm and the Aviation Hall of Fame.

"As I came to know the people in the Senior program I was and remain completely astonished at how many countries and cultures are represented in the gym every week day morning," said Wurm. Ramesh Shah, 74, is a Hindu and retired to the U.S. from Bombay, India, 20 years ago. He thinks the senior people he meets and all Americans are "very jolly and always smiling."

Grace Church has always been involved in the community especially from the time of the late rector, Rev. Paul Moore, who integrated the parish, fought for social justice and eventually became the Bishop of New York, the most prestigious Episcopal position in the U.S.

"Grace is a growing congregation with people of all ages. It's like a cathedral in downtown Jersey City because people come here seven days a week for worship, community, a meal, arts programming, childcare, our Sunday used book sale and to volunteer," said Wurm. And no one more active than Joyce Davison, who epitomizes the Grace spirit and has helped thousands of people through her volunteering at the church.

F.Y.I.

From the press release:

"When Mayor Healy took office in 2004, he quickly worked to hire new police officers as the Department was at an all-time low with only 789 officers."

Good job, we are now all the way up to a total of 806.   This is progress you can see.

Crime & Safety / Re: Crime is Down
« on: 08-15-2012, 02:46pm »
I have to say, I am beginning to think that the JCPD's stats are suspect.  The JCPD Compstat report for June says that there were no murders in Jersey City.  Yet that the Jersey Journal reported that a guy was killed on June 17th at Al's Diner (he was pinned by a car to a trash container, after multiple shots were fired).  I guess this isn't counted as homicide.  Death by trash recepticle?

Shameless bump.

See you tonight.

Unfortunately, I cannot attend the meeting.  But, I am curious to find out where they expect all the trucks will be going once they come off the Turnpike (exit 14 B).

On to Garfield Avenue, and then, possibly even more local streets?   

If so, this is a terrible idea.   Only a suit who doesn't live here would consider this.

Apparently, they are modifying Exit 14 A in Bayonne, and plan to re-route all truck traffic to Jersey City. 

I guess we don't have enough air pollution.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2010/12/music_collectors_snatch_up_vin.html

The 21st-century vinyl revival descended upon Jersey City, as about 300 people scoped out the diverse selection of records at Parlay Studios on Saturday.

The Jersey City Record/CD Riot music fair is the second for the city. The next event is scheduled for Feb. 26.

Record dealers, some who have used to own stores or have been merchants at trade shows for decades, opened their cardboard boxes of limited-edition treasures to the public from noon to 8 p.m. CDs were available for sale in the back room.

Stephen Gritzan, owner of Iris Records and the event’s founder, said vinyls and 45s will never have mass appeal again, but that’s not a reason to give up.

“It’s too late to change that,” Gritzan said. “But fanatics of vinyl can come to this and buy whatever they want.

Ray Reynolds, a records merchant from Allentown, Pa., specializes in selling recordings of ’60s garage rock and psychedelic rock. His merchandise ranges in price from $1 to $600. A 45 of The Rolling Stones’ 1967 single, “Dandelion,” goes for $250.

Efrem Oshinsky, of Jersey City, bought several [lame ass] R.E.M. singles and was browsing the reggae vinyl selection when the Journal caught up with him.

“It’s nice to have something in your own backyard,” Oshinsky, 27, said. “You don’t have to go to Brooklyn or Manhattan for this.”


Gritzan’s store Iris Records, located at 114 Brunswick St., is open 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

Put her way for life piece of garbage. Abuse of your Judge ship.
We girls have to be smart . we cant call no self defense when we come and take out a rifle and the other is in the stone age with a stick and a broom , not we cant call self deffense when we make a phone call and go there .
I wish All been caught !!!! I know it I was Dreaming. Home boy looks nuts - whatz up the cemetaries - doin dirt hiding behind the cloth - if there is a Hell below-----they r all going to go. Show me the video with her handing out the money , even then i still think she is manipulate at old age elderlies get real fast manipulate.
Any who don't know this type of individuals when you hear this type of comments out of their mouth or Pipes you will even drop some tears if you are a sensitive person .
When u get to have enjoy them all i flesh and blood like my own self .. and those who did followed the story in person , then you get to think - Oh Boy Lord ! -- How long we all being taken by this awful ride .
I would like to comment that since the BP oil spill, the king and queen of England have not said anything about it, according to my knowledge.
They are a British petroleum outfit, so how come the king and queen of England haven't spoken on the matter?
They should be helping to clean it up.
HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVE! He had no reason to be on the internet chattin with other female when he is married. furthmore, he had no bussines meeting up with this woman. Now when someone put a knife to him all of a sudden he relized he has a wife. In my book, if he was true to his wife he would not have been a victim of a crime. I also do not feel sorry for his nasty, nasty self. he is no victim his poor wife is the true victim of thist crime. My heart goes out to all the women who have a NASTY, NASTY, man that cannot keep his pants up!!!
when i go off the deep end i'm gonna git me some pcp, i'll be like superman!
Just think someone would argue that the brothers are okay, pizza at 1:00AM in a colored neighborhood, talk about insanity. . Just sit back and enjoy the show. This is not only JC but everyplace USA in colored neighborhoods?
hope he is stupid and has a toy gun when the cops find him. He needs to be put down. How can you do that to a 7 month old baby. What is wrong with you. No wait, put him in general population during shower time, announce the new prisoneer with his charges and turn out the lights for 5 minutes. That would be justice.
I am calling about the fountain in Journal Square. Can we do something to light a fire under the mayor and make him turn that fountain on this year?
We were without a fountain last year.
That fountain is the only thing Journal Square has, and it is really nice when it is on.
Thank you very much. I DON'T CARE WHO'S PICTURE YOU PUT THERE, THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS SUCK. YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES PUTTING US IN THIS POSITION. ALL OF YOU SHOULD BE RIPPED FROM YOUR SEATS, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE , HORRIBLE. WHAT ABOUT OUR SENIORS, THAT ARE ON A FIXED INCOME ? I DON'T CARE IF YOU BAN ME FOREVER FROM THIS N.J.COM, BUT I HAVE TO SAY THIS JERSEY CITY CITY COUNCIL SUCKS.
Ok, ok, but is the JJ using that mug shot on purpose? I've seen better faces on moose crossing signs.
