During this extended time of masking, social distancing, continued isolation and uncertainty, SJC is creating a new ministry of volunteers who can connect with our elderly and vulnerable parishioners.
Being alone, feeling isolated or missing day-to-day interactions with others can affect one’s overall health and well-being. As a caring faith community we are called to live daily according to the way of Jesus, to love as Christ loved.
We are seeking volunteers who are detail oriented, can communicate effectively, and are compassionate listeners to help us make pastoral phone calls to SJC parishioners to offer encouragement, to pray with them, listen to them and help determine if they have any needs that we can address. It is hoped that the connections you make turn into “friendships” that strengthen our parish community. All training and volunteer work will be done remotely.
Please register below, and we will contact you about training. Please call Steve Weigand at 260-450-1146 with questions.
Dear C.C. Volunteers,
Thank you for volunteering to contact some of the elderly and vulnerable members of our parish. Virtual training for Community Connection volunteers is scheduled for this Wed. Sept. 9 @ 7:00 p.m. and will take less than an hour of your time.
Below is a sample phone script for you to look over for Wednesdays training which will also include time for your questions, how to log the results of your call as well as how to respond to requests for assistance.
Blessings and thank you for your time,
