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.

Responses from The Episcopal Church

At the highest levels and locally, Bishops and clergy have addressed the issues of the ongoing protests and the use of church property for political propaganda. Fr Ian has not issued a separate statement, but his voice echoes those of the following:


White Fragility: A Book Discussion Group

based on the book White Fragility written by Robin DiAngelo

July 12, 2pm via Zoom


Join in to discuss how we might start a dialogue on the issues of white supremacy and racial inequality. Hard copies of the book may be hard to come by since most online outlets are sold out and a wait list has been established. Online book retailers such as Amazon, Kobo and Barnes and Noble all have eBook versions that can be downloaded and may be quicker to purchase. The group will be using the Reading Guide by Ozlem Sensoy and Robin DiAngelo, which can be found in PDF free online or email Peggy Myrick for an emailed copy, or with any questions about the group.

Grief Support Group Forming

This group will be for "non-death loss", such as loneliness, isolation, or sadness due to the pandemic or general state of the world; the loss of a home or job; divorce, separation, or the end of a significant relationship; or perhaps a tragic accident or illness that has altered your or a loved one's life. Any of these situations can and often do trigger grief, causing us to go back and revisit older traumas that were never quite fully resolved.


There is room for about 8-10 participants, and it will be a "closed" group, meaning that once it forms, there will be no newcomers, and once you commit, you agree to remain with the group through to its conclusion. This is because of the trust relationships and bonds that develop between members which are central to the group's process and well-being. The number of sessions will depend on, and roughly match, the number of participants.
If you are interested in being part of the group, slated to get started in July, or if you have any questions, please contact Berkeley Johnson by email at berkeley.johnson@gmail.com or phone (805) 550-5133




8 pm every Thursday and Monday via Zoom

Compline or Night Prayer is being offered by Lorienne Schwenk of St Benedict's. This short service to close the day is open to anyone in the SLO Deanery on Thursday and Monday evenings at 8 pm.
