The Stephen Ministry equips laypersons to provide distinctively Christian one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our congregation and in our community. There are times when each of us needs the care of another person, a Christian friend, a Stephen Minister. These needs include, but are not limited to…the hospitalized, the elderly, the terminally ill and their families, the homebound, the separated or divorced, those grieving a death or a serious loss, those with disabilities and their families. Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry; those receiving care can be sure that their identity and what goes on in the caring relationship will remain private. If you are interested in talking to a Stephen Minister or have an interest in becoming a Stephen Minsiter , contact: Nancy Lessick at 419-884-2676 [email protected] or Marilyn Hunter at 419-756-2769 [email protected].

Knights of Columbus
Knights and their families feed the hungry and help shelter the homeless. They help senior citizens remain healthy and active. They fight to protect the right to life of all individuals. Who are the Knights in our community? You have seen us working at the parish picnics, fish fries, and fundraisers for handicapped children. All K of C programs allow families to work together to aid their church, their community and one another. This all helps create community in the church family. If you are a practicing Catholic man at least 18 years old, the Knights of Columbus provides you an opportunity for fellowship with men who share the same beliefs, and who recognize the same duty to God, to family and to the folks down the block. You can become as involved as you wish. Contact Tom Morrell 419-884-7774 or [email protected]
