In these difficult times, if you need help, if you are having anxiety or if you just need someone to talk to, call St. Thomas at 630.355.8980 and leave a message. Someone will call you back within 4-6 hours. They may call back on a blocked number so please answer all calls.
Sometimes it is difficult for people to make a call if they need help or need to talk with someone. In these times, even if people are doing OK, a “check-in” call from someone can be a highlight for that day and be a positive for both the person called and the person dong the calling.
Twelve St. Thomas staff and parishioners have become “proactive” callers. The goal is to make a “check-in” call to every parish family … a very aggressive goal! They have just gotten started.
Felicia from Pastoral Care is one of the proactive callers. “I have been calling for two days now. I’m fine, but am talking too much and having fun. Calls are well received.”
Would you be willing to be a pro-active caller? Contact Mike Ryder and he will answer any questions you might have. Calling Guidelines and Talking Points are provided.
