This is a ministry of listening and being there rather than talking or doing! There are many fellow parishioners who at some time of grief or loss, sickness or fear, need a loving person to just sit with them, be present. There are also many homebound parishioners who miss the friends and social gatherings of the church.
If you have been told or feel you are a great friend who listens well to others, this surely is the ministry for you. It is a chance to make new friends or reunite with old friends. There are no time limits or constraints … visits can be daily, weekly, monthly … whatever works in one’s schedule. All volunteers will need to go through the “Safe Environment” training.
