Friendly Visitors

Friendly Visitors

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. We love, because He first loved us.” - 1 John 4: 15-16;19

The Friendly Visitor ministry of St Mary Parish is dedicated to providing a human connection for homebound or activity-limited individuals living in private homes, assisted living and nursing facilities. Each visitor is asked for a commitment of one thirty-minute weekly visit with their “buddy.”  Providing fellowship and friendship in answer to the call to love is the focus of this ministry.

Completion of an Archdiocesan background check and attendance at VIRTUS training is required to participate.  For more information, contact Martha Smith at 203-483-0207 or mmmsmith@att.net.
