Prayers for the repose of the soul of Marjorie Sorge

The prayers of St. Stephen’s are requested for the repose of the soul of Marjorie Sorge, wife of Bishop Elliott Sorge. Bishop Sorge was the second Rector of St. Stephen’s (1960-1964), before becoming the Bishop of South Central Brazil. Marge died last evening (August 11, 2018)

Please also keep in your prayers her children, including the Rev. Marianne Ell (who served at St. Peter’s Williston), and their entire family at this time.

Almighty God, before whom live all who die in the Lord: Receive our sister Marge into the courts of your heavenly dwelling place. Let her heart and soul now ring out in joy to you, O Lord, the living God, and the God of those who live. This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reception for Gin Templeton

The Dedication and Blessing of our final stained glass window, The Bread of Life window, drew a packed house and many visitors. 

A reception for Gin Templeton followed Sunday's Mass. Gin faithfully designed each window based on the various ministries we do at St. Stephen's. The series of eight windows was a true artistic accomplishment.


As part of our thanks, a gift of several bottles of Sauvignon Blanc were given to Gin by Senior Warden Steve Bolduc on behalf of the congregation. 


Thank you, Gin, for your vision and hard work!

We honored Gin Templeton following Mass today for her hard work, dedication and talent. From her reaction, you can tell that Sauvignon Blanc was the perfect thank-you gift. Thank you so much, Gin!!!
