Writer Samantha Smith joined the newspaper staff in 2019. Her favorite assignment of last year was the story she did on Stephen Ministries. In this photo, Stephen Ministers from St. Peter Chanel Church, Roswell, meet during semimonthly small peer group supervision. It’s a time when Stephen Ministers share experiences and bounce ideas off of each other, so they can better serve their care receivers.


Writer’s favorite assignment highlighted listening ministry

All of us have faced difficulties in life. Whether it is job loss, divorce, financial stress, we know that life is not always fair or kind. When we face those darker times, support in the form of a listening ear can make all the difference. This kind of life-changing support is provided through Stephen Ministry.
