Seasonal Programs

Christmas Time

  • We support the Hope Christmas Wish Tree, filling special gift needs and requests.  St. Stephen’s provides special gift requests for some Helen Porter Nursing Home residents.
  • We continue our Sunday collection of food items and encourage extra donations to assist those in need over school vacation and the holidays.


  • In 2020 we will initiate a new ministry of collecting diapers for children in shelters during the 12 days of Christmas leading up to Epiphany.

Lenten Socks

  • We collect new socks during Lent for homeless and diabetic people.

Fall Fund Raisers 

On-Going Food Related Efforts

  • Every Sunday food is collected during the Offertory for our local Food Shelf.  
  • Every Monday, Community Lunch is provided at St. Stephen’s. During the summertime, our Community Lunch program is held at Charter House.
  • Friday Night Community Suppers – 3 times a year St. Stephen’s cooks a full, nutritious evening meal for around 200 people. Contact Tom Turley 

We provide at least 4,000 meals to our community each year. Peasant Market and donations support this ministry.
