Renew + Restore + Rejoice

For more than five years, St. Stephen has been working on a plan to ensure the long-term success of our parish.
In addition to replacing some much-needed infrastructure and financial reserves, we are excited about the visible changes to our church and school:
- Revitalized and refreshed sactuary, infused with Catholic symbolism, that welcomes prayerful worship.
- Comfortable new space for community gathering and celebration.
- Updated and upgraded classrooms to support our 21st century learner
Our three-year Campaign officially launched February 25, 2017. Demolition began in August of 2018 and construction was completed in early May, 2019. Our first Mass celebrated in the church was on Wednesday, May 29, 2019.
A St. Stephen parishioner wrote this prayer for the success of our campaign and our St. Stephen Community. We encourage you to download it and pray it frequently.
All-knowing God of Renewal, You created me and led me here to serve and to grow;
Thank You for the renewal You create in me each day.
Lord of Restoration, help me pursue Your love and Your call to hope for our community.
Inflame my desire to be part of your plan as Jesus taught, "Thy will be done."
Oh God of my heart, I Rejoice in You! I seek You now;
Speak to me through Your Holy Spirit.
