ST STEPHEN'S CENTRAL
LIVING FAITHFULLY IN THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS
ST STEPHEN'S IS GATHERING VIRTUALLY
During CovidTide, St Stephen’s Church is still called as members of the Body of Christ to witness to the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord, loving God and our neighbor. Our core commitment never changes; how we live into it does. St Stephen’s will continually adapt our worship and community life to express this mission for the world under current conditions and in keeping with the best available public health guidelines.
ALL ABOUT REGATHERING:
UPDATES TO SERVICES AND EVENTS
To help keep everyone safe, and to abide by the latest directive from Bishop Marc, as of March 16th, the church and parish house are closed for in-person regular worship and cultural events from now through the end of AUGUST.
The health of the community is our highest priority. We encourage people to stay connected with St Stephen’s and one another through livestreaming services and virtual meetings.
We invite you to join us online for a live broadcast of our 10:00 am Service of Holy Eucharist:
When the service broadcast is completed, the video is archived straightaway and available via the same link.

Next week's movie will be "The Battle of Algiers" (1966), which is a fictionalized mock-documentary about the French-Algerian war 1954-1957. I had a different movie about poetry in mind but watching this movie again made me want to discuss it together. It's a singular movie, unlike any other before or since. (Free on kanopy.com)
