Martyr Mission: Faith in Action 

Our Parish’s largest annual fundraiser, Martyr Madness, has been renamed: Martyr Mission. This new name and branding better aligns with our updated Parish logo and mission: St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church is a community for all to encounter Christ, know Christ and proclaim Christ. To further support this rebranding and to bring freshness to each year’s event, an annual theme will be created. This year’s theme is Faith in Action. Please plan to join us for fellowship, fundraising and fun at Martyr Mission…Faith in Action, March 16, 6 p.m. at Tiburon Golf Club. Invitations will be mailed the week of January 28. Proceeds support our Parish, School and Religious Education.
