St. James is giving serious consideration to establishing a Stephen Ministry in our parish.  Stephen Ministry organizes and equips laypeople to multiply the care a Pastor can provide.  The Pastor often provides immediate care at the onset of a crisis, but frequently there is no one to provide ongoing follow-up care.  Stephen Ministers multiply the care a Pastor can provide.  They bring Christ’s care to their care receivers.  They are well-trained caregivers who also know the importance of remaining connected to Jesus.  With Stephen Ministry, people no longer have to go through crises and difficulties alone.  If you think you might be interested in this ministry, or if you have questions about it, contact Bob Tindall, 717-575-3092 or
