Our 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.


Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) 2017 Launch

The annual Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) draws together all Catholics in the Diocese of Grand Rapids in a unique way in the service of the Lord. Every financial gift to the CSA helps sustain programs that would not otherwise be possible through one individual or parish "So Faith May Flourish." In a time when our world is becoming increasingly secularized, these works of evangelization, charity and education carry a renewed importance, both in our 11-county diocese and throughout the world. Watch this educational video to find out all the ways your CSA pledge can fulfill our call to be good Stewards of the Church. FUN FACT: A number of St. Stephen School students are featured! How many students do you count?
