Promise to Mary A Story of Faith in Action

Here is the story of Faith in Action, the acclaimed nationwide grant program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that brings together Americans of all faiths to provide volunteer care and support to people in their communities who are confined to their homes because of a chronic health condition or disability.

But this book is far more than simply an account of the Faith in Action program. Through a series of revealing in-depth interviews conducted in three very different parts of the country, Promise to Mary provides a unique and often profoundly moving glimpse into the lives of some of our most isolated and forgotten neighbors—as well as the remarkable volunteers, from all faiths and from all walks of life, who have come to their aid.

"I first heard about Faith in Action when my television series Touched by an Angel came to an end . . . .

"My immediate reaction was that more people needed to know—more volunteers were needed and more local Faith in Action programs needed to be created. And I was going to help in any way I could . . . .

"I've been fortunate to meet hundreds of Faith in Action program directors and volunteers. Their dedication and humility move me every time. They truly put the Golden Rule into practice . . . .

"Paul Jellinek's odyssey to faraway places across America to gather just some of the thousands of Faith in Action stories is truly impressive."
— From the Foreword by Della Reese, national spokesperson, Faith in Action
