Comfort Dog



Ladel, LCC's first parish Comfort Dog, will be turning 10 years old on February 7!  Our day school children will be having a small party for her and other Comfort Dogs have been invited to attend.  If you would like to join in on the fun, come to the Day School Chapel Service at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, February 7.

We are drawing closer to the time of placement for our second Comfort Dog.  As the time draws near, we will be making announcements about additional help needed in our Comfort Dog Ministry and supplying needs for our new dog.  A list will be included in the next edition of The Voice in May.

In the meantime, our current "Top Dog," caregivers and handlers will be undergoing extensive training to work with our new dog and to gain further knowledge to help advance our ministry here at St.

Matthew.  We are still taking applications for new handlers!!  If you would like to receive more information about the Comfort Dog Ministry and possibly   becoming a handler, please contact Deb Kinne.  Call/Text 224-360-2015 or email
