Comments Off on APOSTLES CREED

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by
the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God
the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come
to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church,
the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is
the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be
Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done,
on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our
daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we
forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us
not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Befriending Services for young people

Comments Off on Befriending Services for young people

Anyone who knows of a young person who could use a little extra support for some reason can refer them to the service. Please contact Befriending Services at The Volunteer Centre for specific criteria. The permission of the family and young person is always required first.

We recruit, select, train and prepare adult volunteers and match them one to one with a young person. Their contact would average around 2 – 4 hours, once a week. The purpose is to build a relationship based on sharing activities and spending fun time together.

Befriending offers a unique experience for young people and volunteers, because a key feature of the arrangement is that the relationship which develops is a social, not a professional one.

As a result, some of the benefits for the young people are:

  • A greater degree of self confidence and emotional growth
  • A greater capacity to form and maintain relationships
  • An enhanced ability to make use of their own personal resources and access wider community resources

The volunteers gain a great deal too. Apart from the knowledge that they are contributing positively to someone’s development (and the tremendous satisfaction that brings), they have the opportunity to engage in all kinds of activities. Sharing these with a young person brings a different perspective to the experience.

Most Befrienders maintain their commitment because of the personal gains alone. Some find the experience becomes a stepping stone to a career change or development. Many volunteers who have left us in the past have done so to take up training, further education or employment in a care environment.

Befriending poses a paradox. From the volunteer it requires total commitment – but only for a few hours once a week.

So if you are reading this and would like to find out more, call us. Who knows this might be just what you’re looking for.
