Join us this Friday, December 9th for an evening of caroling in the neighborhood around St. Stephen's. We will meet at 6:30pm in the church hall for some light refreshments before going out. This is an excellent opportunity to help spread the Faith beyond the walls of our church. 

I continue to give thanks to all of those who have been able to give some time and talent to the renovation and cleaning of the church. We are making progress and evereything we do for God benefits us immensely.

We will begin the Christmas poinsettia offering this Sunday after Mass. If you would like to dedicate one of the flowers for Christmas in honor of someone you may write their name(s) on the form in the vestibule of the church and put your donation in the box.

This Friday, December 9th and Friday December 23rd, we will be meeting here at the church at 6:30pm for coffee, hot chocolate, and snacks before going out to sing Christmas carols. I am hoping many will come caroling so that we can spread our Faith beyond the walls of the church.

On Saturday, December 10th we will continue the work on the church to prepare it for Christmas. 

-Fr. Gregory Pendergraft, FSSP
