On Saturday, Nov. 1, St. Aloysius Catholic Church and St. Luke’s, St. James and Trinity Episcopal churches are co-sponsoring a Stephen Ministry Introductory Workshop.

It will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at St. Luke’s, 8833 Goodwood Blvd., in Baton Rouge. Participants will learn how to minister to people in grief in a distinctively Christian way and how to use Stephen Ministry to train and organize lay people for one-to-one caring ministry.

More than 11,000 congregations from mover than 150 Christian denominations nationwide have active Stephen Ministry programs in their churches.

The cost of the workshop is $15 per person, or $50 for a group of four or more from the same church. To register, call Stephen Ministry in St. Louis at (314) 428-2600, or register on-line at stephenministry.org/workshop.
