Welcome to St. Stephen Parish

St. Stephen is a Roman Catholic Church of the Diocese of Grand Rapids. We serve primarily the neighborhoods of East Grand Rapids and southeast Grand Rapids. We are a small (600+ families), friendly church with lots of active members, outreach ministries and a solid faith formation program. We also have an excellent parish school. If you are looking for a Christian community where you can feel at home, please come and visit us.

Mission Statement: We, the parishioners of St. Stephen parish, a Roman Catholic faith community, strive to live the Gospel message and answer Jesus' call to holiness through Stewardship, Service to others and Sacramental worship.

Becoming Catholic

Do you experience something missing in your faith life and seek a spiritual home to call your own? Were you Baptized in another Christian tradition and want to learn more about becoming Catholic? Were you Baptized as a Catholic but never celebrated the sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist and now want to be fully initiated? Or perhaps you are married to a Catholic (or plan to marry one) and just want to learn more about your (future) spouse's beliefs and practices. 

St. Stephen parish offers the opportunity to explore and respond to these questions and life circumstances. The process described in The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) enables one to ask questions and discern how God might be calling to you in your faith journey.
