Stephen Ministry

The mission of Saint Mary Help of Christians Stephen Ministry is to serve God by bringing Christ’s healing love to hurting people.

“Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Gal. 6:2

Does this season get you down? Do you have a hard time pretending to be cheerful? Stephen Ministry may be able to help. Stephen Ministers are not counselors or therapists; rather, they are caring Christian friends who offer a listening ear to help others through the tough times in life. Stephen Ministers receive extensive training and are supervised in their ministry.
