The Visiting Committee is part of the Caring Ministries Committee. They and  additional FCCOG volunteers deliver Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies to approximately two dozen church members who are homebound or experienced a loss or serious illness within the past year. Some Visiting Committee members continue with weekly or “as needed” visits.

This group also hosts an annual Valentine’s Tea for FCCOG members living at Edgehill. For additional information about Visiting Committee, contact Sue Asselin (Parish Nurse Staff Liaison) @ (203) 637-1791 ext. 821.
