Pastor’s Connection – 3/1/2018

Ignite40 Campaign




Sign up today to commit to pray for our school!


A strong community, rooted in prayer, is the cornerstone of a great Catholic school.


We invite you to participate in the Ignite40 Lenten prayer campaign, a prayer rally for St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic School.

The entire community – parents, students, faculty, staff and parishioners – are invited to sign up for one day of prayer or fasting for the school during Lent. Whether it’s fasting from screen time or praying as a family, our prayers and sacrifices will ignite the joy of faith, community and learning at St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic School.


Sign up to pray!


Thank you joining us in prayer,


The St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic School Advisory Board


Ignite40 is sponsored by the School Advisory Board’s Mission & Catholic Identity Committee


Lenten Reconciliation Service


Preparing for the Way of the Cross—Saint Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church is offering a

parish-wide Lenten Reconciliation Service at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. The communal

Sacrament of Reconciliation.
