St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish . Madison, Wisconsin
We, the faith community of Saint Thomas Aquinas, united with the Church throughout the world, are called by God to bring the Good News of the Gospel into the life of our community.
We strive to serve each other in a spirit of compassion and love, and to enhance justice, peace and healing in our midst.
We strive also, through our common prayer and worship with the Lord who nourishes us, to enable the gifts of the Spirit to emerge from each one of us and become more fully the disciples of Christ.

Parish Care Team

Our Parish Care Team seeks to aid those who are homebound or living alone to preserve a rich and independent lifestyle. We offer friendly visits and phone contacts, assistance with shopping, errands, and household tasks, and emotional support, prayer, and Home Communion visits. We also offer respite, relief, and support to family caregivers so they may rest and relax while their loved one has a friendly visitor from our parish.

A partner (client) or caregiver calls team members when they are needed, or they can make weekly, bi-weekly,, or monthly arrangements. Team members’ typical service times last about 2 hours. Every other month our team members get together for some spiritual renewal, sharing, and education.

NO NURSING SKILLS ARE REQUIRED! Catholic Charities partners with us to provide training and on-going consultation.
