Who among us has not experienced some sort of personal trauma in our lives?
As Stephen Ministers, we understand how important it is to find someone to confide in and talk to during a crisis or difficult time. We understand because we have experienced many of these problems and tragedies ourselves. Sometimes we aren’t comfortable sharing our inner most thoughts with people close to us. It is often helpful to talk confidentially with someone who can be non-judgmental outside of our close circle of family and friends.
If you or someone you know could benefit from talking to a Stephen Minister, please call gro.a1461907249isats1461907249anats1461907249@name1461907249suohk1461907249.

Lately the Vicariate Justice and Peace committee has been working in cooperation with members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community on Auburn Road on several projects. The mission statement of this joint venture, called Neighbors in Faith, is to promote and encourage understanding and a spirit of cooperation among Christians and Muslims through serving the poor and the needy for the common good. We feel this is especially important during the current period of rising hostility in our country that can only lead to strained relationships between communities if allowed to go unchecked.
In this spirit of understanding, tolerance and cooperation, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is inviting people to come and meet the people next door and see them pray in their place of worship on Friday April, 15 at 1:15pm at 1730 West Auburn Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48309. Prayer service will begin at 1:30pm. Like all other religions including Catholicism, prayers and devotion to God are an integral part of the Muslim faith.
Friday afternoon prayer is particularly important to Muslims where worshippers congregate to pray. This is a great opportunity to observe and better understand the concept of prayer in Islam and the form in which it is done. There will be an opportunity to take a tour of the mosque and ask questions following the prayer service. Light refreshments will be served, and we will have the opportunity to continue working towards a common goal of promoting understanding between Christians and Muslims.
Please respond to moc.l1461907249iamg@146190724914bob1461907249ak1461907249 to help the refreshment planners.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received
from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
