COVID-19 Update

As of March 17, St. Stephen's is closed.  Bishop Lucinda requested that the churches in the SLO Deanery do not meet in person for at least the next 2 Sundays, March 22 & 29 – most likely for Palm Sunday and Easter, as well.


Though we can't meet in person, we can still worship together remotely.  Bishop Lucinda Ashby has sent information that, under the Governor’s order, 3 people are allowed in the building in order to broadcast worship. Sunday and Wednesday Worship will be broadcast from the Chancel. Midday Moment will be broadcast from Fr. Ian’s living room.


On Sunday mornings the 10:00 Worship service will be via Facebook Live from our facebook page. You can join the watch party from 9:50am. If you'd like, you can follow along in the   Service Booklet  and Liturgy and Hymns for Palm Sunday.

Every weekday at 12:15 “Midday Moment” will be available on Facebook Live at No account or login is required.
On Wednesdays, listen in for Morning Prayer at 12:15 on Facebook Live.


To view "live" worship later, after going to our facebook page, click on "videos" in the column on the left.  Among the display of videos available, click on the one you'd like to view.

ChocolaChocEgg4Webte Factory Opens


Yes, we'll be making those beautiful and delicious chocolate Easter eggs again this year, but not for Easter. With the governor ordering us to stay home until at least April 7th we’re not able to begin production soon enough for Easter.   Customers who had already placed orders have been contacted individually about canceling their order or waiting for fulfillment later in the year. If you have any questions about making or purchasing our Parish Council's chocolate eggs, contact Kathleen at
