Parish Life

Parish Life’s mission is to grow a vibrant faith community at St. Stephen’s through events and gatherings that offer fellowship and faith connection, food and fun. Our committee represents a cross-section of the church: Children & Families, Acolytes, Choir, Newcomers, Bouquet Ministry, Altar Guild and Flower Guild, Ushers, Hospitality and Vestry Members.

We plan events and gatherings for parishioners, our preschool families and our neighborhood and work to raise St Stephen’s visibility in the Lamorinda communities.

Parish Life launches projects that improve communication among parishioners:

  • Organizing small group dinners throughout the year that focus on faith connection and fellowship in parishioners’ homes.

  • Updating contact information in the parish database and timely distribution of the parish directory.

  • Creating a Newcomers’ information package and brochure.
