Re-dedication of the rondelles on March 3



On Sunday. March 3, we will re-dedicate and bless the 8 rondelles that originally hung in the windows of the nave until we installed our new stained glass windows.

The rondelles will now hang in the brand new windows recently installed in the undercroft, so they can be enjoyed all by all.

The windows were originally commissioned by St. Stephen’s member Ellen Marks (1936-1979). They were made by Lyn Hovey, a stained glass artist in Cambridge, MA. They were originally dedicated on Easter Day, April 10, 1977.

A plaque will also be installed in the undercroft in memory of Ellen.

It will be great to the rondelles back in a place where they can be enjoyed again.

THANK YOU for your PLEDGES


A deep and heartfelt thank you to all of you who pledged. For the first time in our history, our pledges amounted to SIX DIGITS! That is INCREDIBLE news! And it happened because of all of you!

These pledges will be important and vital in the budget that will be approved this Sunday at our Annual Meeting.

THANK YOU to all who pledged during our Stewardship time. Thank you for all who pledged not only from their finances, but also from their talents.

St. Stephen’s continues to be a congregation that really does make a difference in our community and in the world.

Thank you again for being who you are, St. Stephen’s!
