Pastor’s Connection – April 5, 2018

Parish Survey


Recently, the Pastoral Council completed a series of listening sessions designed to gather your feedback on the current state and future direction of St. Stephen the Martyr. While many attended, we want to ensure that all parishioners have a chance to provide feedback.


Therefore, we will be launching a parish survey designed to allow everyone’s voice to be heard. We encourage all of you to complete this survey and make your thoughts known. The survey can be completed on-line at:

What is happening?


This week:




Fully funded by local churches and SAC Federal Credit Union, our Church Build house has been a few years in the making and we are excited to see work being done on it.  SAC has been a great partner for our Church Build by donating $30,000.00 to the build. St. Stephen parishioners have been a big part of this build also by donating nearly $8,000 dollars.  So we are having a celebration!!


Whether you are a church member who has donated, a Habitat supporter, or a SAC customer, join us for this wonderful afternoon celebrating a great partnership in our community.


When:  Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 3:00 PM
