Stephen Ministers are lay men and women who provide trained, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting or going through tough times.
St. Peter’s currently has a team of parishioners who minister one-on-one to care receivers. Men minister to men, women to women.

If you or someone you love is struggling through a difficult time—grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis, Stephen Minsters want to share that burden by providing strictly confidential, compassionate care.

A Stephen Minister brings Christ’s presence to those in need by listening, caring, encouraging, and prayer. We can make a difference.
