Welcome!

Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

 

Our mission as a parish is to open our hearts to God and to share Christ’s unconditional love with the world. We do this by following three pathways:

  • Welcoming: We invite all to join us at every stage in their spiritual journeys.
  • Worshiping: We cultivate a living tradition of liturgy and a life made holy by the sacraments.
  • Working: We share our abundance, we strive for justice, and we accept our calling to protect God’s creation.

Inclusivity Statement

 St. Stephen's Episcopal Church is a congregation of families and singles, children and seniors, and a diversity of ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, interests, and backgrounds. We are followers of Jesus, guided by His teaching and example to love God and our neighbor. We welcome all people regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, racial background, mental or physical ability, recovery, political belief, economic condition, and all other expressions of what it means to be human. We invite you to worship with us and walk with us no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.

Drive By Blessing of the Animals

3pm Sunday, October 4

 

Bring your pet in your car for the annual Blessing of the Animals. It will be completely safe with your pet and you in the car. Approach St Stephen’s from Pismo Street. As you cross Broad Street, use St Stephen’s first driveway on the right into the parking lot (GPS: 660 Pismo). Park in a space and make sure your pet is on the passenger side of the car. An attendant will let you know when it is your turn and give you a prayer. Proceed out the second driveway and come to the red zone right in front of the main doors to the church. Roll down your window. You can say the prayer together with the priest who will bless your pet and you with holy water. Any pet is welcome if they bring their human with them.

How to Be An Ally

The Diversity Coalition of SLO held 4 panel sessions on "How to be an ally". Each had a different constituency of the community, including one with a panel of faith leaders. They were all very good. Watch them at: https://www.diversityslo.org/

 


Responses from The Episcopal Church
