BeFriender Ministry

BeFriender Ministry is a lay pastoral care program. Trained lay persons enter into caring relationships with those during times of transition and in need of pastoral care, providing emotional and spiritual support through a confidential, non-judgmental presence and using active listening skills. BeFrienders do not take the place of family or friends. They receive ongoing supervision by the BeFriender Coordinator and the Director of Pastoral Ministry as well as by their peers through a ministry reflection process. For more information about the BeFriender Ministry Program, contact our Pastoral Minister, Eric Cooley, at 651-288-3268.
