Congratulations to our New Stephen Ministers!

Four men and four women were commissioned as new Stephen Ministers at the 11:00 Mass on June 3, bringing our total to 24 confidential Christian emotional care givers.

Our new Stephen Ministers are Ed Blocher, Frances Hamacher, Richard Kowalsky, Connie O’Sullivan, Jim O’Sullivan, Malcolm Saldanha, Marcia Rea, and Louise Peloquin. They completed the 50 hours of training to prepare them to offer confidential Christian care to those who seek emotional support to deal with stress, grief, life transitions or other concerns.

Stephen Ministers are assigned care receivers of the same gender, so we are particularly happy to increase our number of male care givers from one to five. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing one of life's many challenges, contact Fr. Robert or Lynn Sale (919-973-0018) and find out if a Stephen Minister can be of help.
