Senior Peer Counseling Program Presentation

Twice in January, Michele Epstein of Peninsula Family Service (PFS) and Kitty Van Beckum made presentations to parishioners on the Senior Peer Counseling Program offered by PFS.  They met with parishioners on Sunday, January 12th and later in the month with St. Catherine’s Section.

The goal was two-fold: to educate St. Matthew’s community about this wonderful, caring service for seniors and to invite our own senior parishioners to become volunteers. Michele talked about the program parameters and Kitty spoke from her volunteer perspective about how rewarding this service this can be for volunteers.
