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



2nd Annual SLO Enchilada Festival

Saturday, October 6th, from 11am - 2pm


Local vendors and restaurants will be vying for "Best Enchilada," and it's up to you, the attendees, to taste and vote for your favorites!
This fundraiser is in support of the CanterburyShire Episcopal Campus Ministry, now in its 12th year serving college students and young adults in the SLO deanery.  Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on Oct. 6th!


Blessing of the Animals

October 7, 2018 at 3pm

The celebration honors Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and one of the earliest environmentalists. You and your beloved pets will receive a blessing, and we will affirm the role of animals in Creation and Salvation.
This free event will take place at Emerson Park in SLO at Pismo and Nipomo Streets across from the church. Please bring a folding chair or picnic blanket for your comfort. Pets should be on a leash or in a carrier.


Grave Talk

October 28 at noon


GraveTalk will be a café space (with a light lunch) where people can talk about big questions. The conversation is helped along by GraveTalk conversation. This is not bereavement support – it’s an opportunity for people of all ages to gather, to talk and to share their thoughts about death, dying and funerals in a safe, supportive environment.
RSVP by October 18 to office@ststephensslo.org with “GraveTalk” in the subject line or call 1-805-543-7242.

The Bargain Book Bin:  The ones that didn't make it into the Bible
November 17


Lenore Erickson, Emeritus Faculty Member of Cuesta College and parishioner of St Peter’s in Morro Bay, will be leading 4 or 5 sessions (in one day) on differently-themed writings that were considered for the Canon of The Bible, but were not included, known as “non-canonical books”. The day will be laid out so that you can come for one or more sessions that you are particularly interested in, or you can come for the whole day. It will start with coffee and snacks, include lunch and ends before dinner.
