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.

All Soul's Day Service

November 3 at 3pm

 

This service will be an opportunity for loves ones to be remembered, prayers for them and for those who grieve, and looking toward our hope.  If you would like a loved one remembered, please give the names to the Office, 805-543-7212, office@ststephensslo.org.  You may also send a photo of your loved one to be included in a collage to be put in front of the altar through Christ The King Sunday, Nov 24.  Bring your photo to the office to be scanned, or email a digital photo.

 


Stewardship Sunday

November 17

 

Fall at St. Stephen's has traditionally been the season when we focus on sharing our abundance in the form of an annual giving campaign, and has been the time for us to celebrate this abundance and our lives together as a parish community in the form of a stewardship meal, traditionally known as the ingathering.  Breakfast will be served after the 8am service, and brunch after the 10am service.

 


Men's Retreat

February 7-9

 

This annual retreat will be held at Mt. Calvary Retreat House in Santa Barbara, and may be our last retreat there, as the facility is closing early in 2021.  The Brothers of St. Andrew at St. Stephen's have sponsored a yearly retreat there for at least 15 years. Our retreat leader is Pastor Karen Siegfriedt, Associate Pastor at St. Stephen's, and she has some thoughful, puzzling essays for us to discuss.

 

The retreat cost is $250, with a $50 deposit as soon as possible, check made out to St. Stephen's.  The remaining $200 check should be made out to Mt. Calvary and brought to the retreat.  Contact Bob Levison with any questions at rlevison@calpoly.edu

 


Women's Retreat

February 21-23

 

The Rev. Caro Hall will be our retreat leader at Mr. Calvary in Santa Barbara.  So far, 13 women have signed up, and there's room for a few more.  The everything-included fee is $250 for a two-night stay. $50 is due the first of November.  If interested, contact Diane at dlevison@hotmail.com as soon as possible.
