Nearly everyone has been a “friendly visitor” to someone. It does not require going to meetings or giving reports. When you missed someone at Mass and checked on them, heard someone needed help and you helped, called someone to chat and let them know they are thought of & missed, you are communicating that that person is still a valued member of the church family and, thus, you are being a “friendly visitor!” If you know someone needing to be reconnected to church family by a phone call, occasional visit or brought to church, call Rita Canfield @ 910-287-6649, and she can refer them to someone in their area. If you’re willing to be a visitor, let Rita know and she will refer you as needed. Please let Rita know if you are available, or if you need this ministry. This does not include bringing communion. For that, one needs to call Pat McLaughlin @ 910-287- 5479.
