Stephen Ministry


Stephen Ministers offer Christian care to adults going through difficult times. Difficulties range from dealing with an illness, losses in life including the loss of loved one, a job, break-up of a marriage or moving to assisted living facility and others.  A trained volunteer Stephen Minister of the same gender visits as a confidential friend in Christ. Typically relationships last from 3 months to a year or more. Prayer may or may not be part of the weekly visits, which typically last 1 hour. Everything discussed is held in complete confidence. To talk more about having a Stephen Ministry, contact Chris Ramsey at 747-3862.

Who is a Stephen Minister?  Stephen Ministers are parish volunteers who undergo extensive, formal training and are commissioned by the pastor. Currently there are 6 Stephen Ministers at St. Kateri who meet every other week to support each other in this ministry and receive continuing education.  If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Stephen Minister, contact Chris Ramsey.
