I was a stranger and you invited me in.
I was sick and you looked after me.
I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Matthew 25:35-36

Samaritan CareTeam volunteers offer practical care, emotional support, and nonjudgmental listening to people living with HIV/AIDS and other life challenges.

Samaritan CareTeams unite communities of compassionate care and inclusive spirituality with people living in isolation and loneliness. The St. James CareTeam currently ministers to two CarePartners and could use your help! If you are interested in this ministry, contact Patrick Barredo (pbarredo@stjames-cathedral.org, 206-382-4515 ).

The beauty of CareTeams is that your volunteer time is set on your schedule! Some of our volunteers spend 3-4 hours per month, some 3-4 hours per week. Support is based on the collective gifts and abilities of the volunteers and the needs and wishes of the CarePartners. Transportation to the food bank and appointments, visits, phone calls, potluck celebrations, sitting with a CarePartner at the hospital or doctor's office and small shopping trips are some of the varied activities the St. James CareTeam has provided over this past year.
