The Friendly Visitor program strives to help parishioners maintain social interaction with our faith community, to let them know they are remembered and help relieve loneliness and feelings of isolation.
Visitors will visit a maximum of twice a month and a minimum of once a month. Visits might include such activities as reading to a person, writing letters, playing cards or other games, sharing news of St Luke’s or sharing a cup of tea.
No prior experience is needed as training is required and will be provided with ongoing support to volunteers.
The Lay Leader’s responsibilities are to recruit, screen, train and support volunteer visitors. The Lay Leaders will also receive referrals on individuals in need and make an initial visit to determine needs and match with a potential volunteer visitor.
