The main mission of the Parish Visitor program is to maintain a warm, loving connection with those members who due to age or infirmity are no longer able to make it to church on a regular basis. Acting on behalf of the congregation, Parish Visitors conduct monthly visits and weekly phone calls with homebound members to bring “the light touch of Christian friendship” to them and to assure them of God’s love and the congregation’s on-going concern for their well-being.
Each of us has a deep need for being validated, for knowing that our lives matter, for “telling our story”. This is something that Parish Visitors understand and so, above all, they seek to bring the gift of listening to these relationships to meet that need. It is in this way that they manifest God’s love for their homebound “visitee”.
