St. John Vianney Church is reaching out to lonely and isolated seniors.
St John Vianney Parish has introduced a new program to reach our lonely and isolated seniors within Barrie. It has been identified that in Simcoe County we have a higher number of seniors living alone without family support and in desperate need of a friendly visitor. We have recently trained and vetted many mature and responsible volunteers that are ready and willing to partner with a lonely senior. Our dedicated volunteers would visit and spend one hour a week with the participant to just talk, play games etc, and just be a reliable buddy.
The program is open to all seniors within Barrie and we would encourage anyone to call our parish office and recommend the name of someone who might benefit from this ministry. For more information please call; St John Vianney Church at 705-726-8007 ext 103.
