In this ministry, a parish volunteer visits a parishioner who has difficulty getting to church – the person visited may be homebound, a caregiver, lonely, or just want someone to talk to. The visits are intended to bring the Joy of Christ to each member of the pair. Visits may consist of conversation and getting to know one another, playing cards or a board game, reading the Bible or another favorite book, praying, or whatever brings a bit of happiness. The hope is to help our members feel connected to St. Thomas’ even if they are unable to get to worship on Sunday. If you would like to become a Friendly Visitor, or, if you know someone who would appreciate a visit, please contact Mikie Fernley.
