Stephen Ministry Commissioning

You’re invited to the commissioning of the new class of Stephen Ministers at Our Lady of Lourdes, Sunday, April 22 at the 10 a.m. Mass.

Here at Our Lady of Lourdes a new group of Stephen Ministers have just gone through fifty hours of training to provide confidential, one to one Christian care to people who are facing a crisis or simply going through a difficult time. A Stephen Minister meets with his or her care receiver once a week for around an hour to listen, care, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual encouragement. Men are matched with male Stephen Ministers, and women are matched with female Stephen Ministers.

This commissioning service offers an opportunity for you to support this ministry and learn how you or others can benefit from it.
