Stephen Ministry is a one-to- one ministry by trained, caring parishioners. "We have all had friends who were grieving, depressed, lone- ly, strangers in the area, ill, dy- ing or divorced, and we pro- bably wished we knew what to say or do," said Mary Ann Sang of St. Joseph parish. "We have also had people call us about a problem. Perhaps we felt helpless to respond to them. "The people who commit themsel,es to the 18 session , training program will be learn- ing helping skills of many kinds. They will be developing their own natural abilities."
