Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is our self. Decisions we make, and things we experience can haunt us for years. Often we need to look at our life from a different perspective to realistically see through different eyes, and with the help of God. Through the blessings of the Sacrament of Reconciliation our sins are forgiven and we are made right with God. However, memories and regrets can linger in our heart.
If you know someone – perhaps a friend, neighbor, coworker, relative or even yourself – who is going through a difficult time, there's a wonderful way you can help them receive the care and support they need. Tell them about Stephen Ministry. Our Stephen Ministers have received 50 hours of training to provide high quality, confidential, one-to-one Christian care to hurting people. They meet weekly with their care receivers to listen, care, encourage and provide emotional and spiritual support. The caring relationship lasts as long as needed. It's free and it's a powerful way you can help a hurting friend.
Our Stephen Ministers are there to care!
