Befriender Ministry Training

Center for Ministry

A Befriender is someone who listens with compassion, accepts people as they are, respects another’s spiritual journey, and embodies the caring presence of God. Befrienders provide pastoral care for people in all kinds of difficult and transitional situations. They are trained volunteers who extend the care of a faith community. Befrienders provide pastoral care through a listening presence for anyone going through a difficult time, especially the sick and homebound from our parishes. Ongoing training and support is offered and encouraged.
