Pastoral Care ministers provide prayer, support, and a listening ear to individuals who are struggling with physical, emotional, marital, and/or familial issues. These trained ministers are available to visit and bring Eucharist to those in the hospital, at treatment centers, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and private homes.
Growing Through Loss Grief Support Series to be Held at St. Stephen’s Church
A series of six sessions will be held on six Thursday evenings (6:45 p.m. check-in, 7:00 p.m. start time) beginning March 7.
