Dedication Sunday

Today was one of those perfect Sunday mornings. We had a full house, lots of children, plus we blessed  backpacks, kicked off a  new year of Children's Chapel, launched our first Capital Campaign in 20+ years and blessed and dedicated our fourth stained glass window, welcomed three new members, as well as celebrated our music ministry with some truly beautiful music. I am so fortunate to serve such an eclectic, unique congregation.

Prayers for the soul of Warren Jackman

I just learned of the death last November of one of our members, Warren Jackman. Warren, who died Nov. 10, 2016, moved to Galena, Illinois, following the death of his wife Levon on February 5, 2016.

A memorial mass was held at Grace Church Galena on Saturday November 26 2016. Burial of ashes was in Resurrection Gardens at Grace Church next to Levon’s.

Warren and Levon made friends with many of us at St. Stephen’s in the short time they were members of St. Stephen’s. News of his death, even this long afterward, is met with great sadness.

Your prayers are requested for the repose of Warren’s soul.

We will include prayers in Warren’s honor at the Wednesday evening Mass on September 20 at 6:00 p.m.
