Saint Stephen Book Club

Building the Saint Stephen Community through Reading and Discussion

"Beware the man of a single book." - St. Thomas Aquinas

The Saint Stephen Book Club began in 2016; its purpose is to build the Saint Stephen Community through reading and discussion.

The group meets once a month to discuss a book they have chosen. New members are always welcome, as well as ideas for new books.
