Stephen Ministry celebrates the Rev. Walt Tollefson

On July 22, 2012,  Stephen Ministers presented a special Stephen Ministry Candle to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Detroit Lakes in memory of Walter Tollefson, a Total Ministry priest who died in September 2010. In addition to being an ordained Total Ministry priest, Walter was also a Stephen Minister, a program locally administered through the United Methodist Church in Detroit Lakes.  Steven Ministry is a one-to-one Christian caring in which its ministers walk with someone who is experiencing one of life’s crises.

The picture depicts the blessing of the candle for use at St. Luke’s during the regular church service which included many representatives from the Methodist Church and Stephen Ministry; present are the Reverence Tollefson’s  widow and daughters, and celebrant,  Total Ministry priest, The Rev. Georgia Hecock.
