Stephen Ministry is a one-to-one ministry by trained, caring parishioners for those who are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Volunteers receive 50 hours of training on how to provide distinctively Christian care, have been commissioned by the Parish to reach out to parishioners in need, and undergo continuing supervision and training for this ministry.
Sacred Heart of Mary has trained men and women who are willing to see you on a regular basis (at least once a week) if you are experiencing a stressful situation or a crisis in your life. A good friend or a close family member who listens to you can be a "treasure" but you may not want to burden them with on-going concerns.
If you need a Stephen Minister who will listen in a non-judgmental way, while maintaining confidentiality, please call our confidential line at 303-499-8989 x 253. Your call will be answered within 24 hours.
