Who are these Stephen Ministers?

These women and men have answered a call of the heart to serve others and follow in Jesus’ footsteps. They desire to walk alongside someone as a compassionate, listening presence. They have completed an extensive formation program and are ready to enter into confidential, one-to-one, caring relationships to accompany those facing life’s many challenges or crises. We bless them and uphold them in prayer as they are sent out now to serve our community through this pastoral ministry.
