Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are trained Our Lady of the Valley parishioners who provide one-to-one Christian care to people who are faced with a crisis or difficulty such as:

  • Loss of a Loved One
  • Divorce or separation
  • Terminal or chronic illness
  • Incarceration
  • Many other life challenges


Stephen Ministry provides the emotional and spiritual care needed. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister remains private and confidential.
