For more information about this ministry at St. Peter Church, contact Lupita Tenpenny (719-495-6545). To learn more about becoming a Stephen Minister, watch the 2016 Stephen Ministry Promo video.

As a monthly service project St. Peter School students in 1st through 8th grades write to a senior parishioner. We want the students to communicate with and pray for people they may never meet. It is not required that the Grandfriend writes back; we are trying to teach the children that it is in giving that they receive so many blessings. Please contact the school (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in being a part of this program. Also, let us know if there is someone you think would benefit from receiving a monthly letter.
