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.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

St. Stephen’s will most likely be staffing a volunteer booth on behalf of the Food Bank. The tasks involve checking collection volunteers in and out, handling the collected donations, making deposits and various and sundry other tasks. On Friday June 3, we will need 3 people per 2-hour shift from 9am to 5pm. Location to be determined, but most likely in SLO City. You can also be a collection volunteer, if you like. Please volunteer via the Office,  805-543-7212, office@ststephensslo.org

 

 


 

 

Brotherhood of St. Andrew Retreat

Saturday, May 21

This year, the Brotherhood will do a one-day format, led by Brother Dennis of the Community of Divine Love here in SLO as retreat leader.  Brother Dennis is an experienced retreat leader and promises some thoughtful interactions and insightful reflections of particular interest to men of the church at various stages of their Fatih journeys.

 

We'll start at 9:am in the sanctuary at St. Paul's Episcopal church in Cambria, break for a light sandwich lunch which is included in your registration, and end at 3:PM.  We'll be arranging carpools, so contact Bud Zeuschner at rfzjr@aol.com if you'd like to drive, or need a ride.  We ask a $25 donation to cover costs, but all are welcome and "retreater-ships" are available. You need not be an active member of the St. Stephen's Brotherhood of St. Andrew's chapter to attend, and it can be a great way to explore questions, deepen faith and support each other as we journey along.

 

The deadline to register is 12 noon on Friday, May 20.  Email Bud Zeuschner at rfzjr@aol.com to register and let him know if you'd prefer a vegetarian option for lunch, or if you'll need a "retreater-ship.

 


 

Eastertide Book Study

May 1, 8, 15 & 22


On the first 4 Mondays in May at 6pm, join the Rector in reviewing the book “Radical Welcome” (2021 Edition) by The Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers.


About the book: This book is at once a theological, inspirational, and practical guide for congregations that want to move beyond diversity and inclusion to present a vision for the church of the future: one where the gifts, voices, and power of marginalized groups bring new life to the mainline church.


The class will be both in-person in Ramsden Hall and via Zoom at https://tinyurl.com/StStZoom

Sponsorship of Hunger Awareness Day

St. Stephen’s has been a sponsor of Hunger Awareness Day for 3 or 4 years now. Our relationship with SLO Food Bank is one of the strongest we have in the community. Last year we were part of the planning committee, and we staffed a volunteer booth that raised the most of any of their volunteer locations around the County.

 

This year Hunger Awareness Day is June 3 and we want to sponsor at the Hunger Warrior $2,500 level again this year. Please give generously. Write your check to “St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church” with “Food Bank” in the memo. If we raise more than we need, we will reserve it for sponsorship of the Turkey Trot in November.
