A Listening Presence

How do I schedule a visit from an Emmaus Minister?

Have you ever wished you had someone to talk to who would just listen—really listen? Without offering advice? Without trying to change or fix your story?

Many times in our lives, it would be wonderful to have an objective, compassionate listening ear. Situations we experience—happy or sad—are powerful stories to tell. Basilica Emmaus Ministers are ready to listen with compassion and confidentiality, to accept people as they are, and to honor the wisdom we each hold in our hearts.

Contact Wendy Caduff, 612.317.3474, to be connected with a listening minister.

Emmaus Ministry is a part of the national BeFrienders ministry program. Visit the BeFrienders website for more information.
