The purpose of this Visitation Program is to support our senior parishioners who find themselves suffering from loneliness and social isolation. This program provides parishioner volunteer visitor teams who embody the Gospel values of patience, kindness, compassion and gentleness to visit fellow parishioners who are homebound working to strengthen their connection with the parish community.
These volunteer visitors will receive training for the Catholic Health Association of BC's Pastoral Care Outreach Program. This 4-session training program will seek to educate parishioners and pastoral care teams to ensure a unified and focused response that is available, accessible and relational.
This program assists the pastoral care teams in developing the necessary skills and pastoral presence to help them in this ministry.
