The  mission of St. Stephen's Church is to proclaim that we are committed
through spiritual development to reach out into the community, share the
Good News of Jesus Christ, and to keep our door open to those in need.

Announcements

Back to school supplies needed

for 79th Street School.

A list is available in the Parish Hall 
of what can be bought, donated
and then will be given to the students.
As in years past, your generosity is appreciated!


Summer Worship and Visits 
If you are unable to worship at St. Stephen's,
it is hoped that you will attend another church.

During your travels,
please pick up a bulletin or newsletter from the church you visit.
it is always good to see how fellow Christian communities worship
and share information about their ministry activities.
It is also good to hear from you about your experience.



The greatest announcement being,

Alleluia, Christ is risen!
The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia!


+ The Holy Gospel +

Please stand and listen to the Gospel being proclaimed.
For in so doing, we believe that when its proclamation takes place,

it is as if Jesus, himself, is present among us.
Feel free to take the scripture insert home with you
where you can then read it and prayerfully study.
