Construction has begun! Due to tree removal on our campus, some parking areas may be unavailable for weekend Masses on September 15 and 16. Signs will direct you to additional parking available in the lots across Southpark Drive. 

Stephen Ministers offer free, confidential support

Don't suffer alone. Talk with one of our ministers.

We like to think of summer as being a relaxing, enjoyable time. But hurts, struggles, crises and problems don’t take a vacation. Our difficulties can seem even worse during the summer because everyone else seems to be enjoying life. If you are experiencing a difficult time — emotionally, spiritually, or relationally — you don’t have to suffer alone.

Our Stephen Ministers are trained caregivers, ready to listen, care for and encourage you, pray with and for you, and provide one-to-one Christian care to help you through whatever it is that you are facing. Men are matched with male Stephen Ministers, and women are matched with female Stephen Ministers.

It’s free. It’s confidential. And it will make a difference in your life!

To find out more about Stephen Ministry for you or someone you know, talk with Lynn Sale, Pastoral Associate at or 919-973-0018, or with one of our other Stephen Leaders: Ed Blocher, Rosalie Chamberlain, Carol Manenti, Barbara Ralston, Leanne Woodward.
