COME AS YOU ARE

St. Stephen's is a church that welcomes all people, wherever they are on their spiritual journey. We invite all newcomers to travel with us and to become involved as active members of our church community.

 

Worship at St. Stephen's

 

We are thrilled to host worship inside our sanctuary at 7:45AM & 10AM.

For the health, well-being and safety of everyone in the congregation masks are strongly recommended. Since some among us are vaccinated and some are not, we all believe this to be essential to create a truly safe space for all the members of our congregation to safely return, especially the children in our community.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

National Day Of Prayer (2).png

On Saturday, May 14, 2022 in Buffalo, New York, ten people were killed and three others were injured when a gunman opened fire at a grocery store in what investigators and lawmakers describe as a racially-motivated attack. The killing reverberated across the country as people tried to process the loss from yet another mass killing. Santa Claritans share the same despair and concern that people throughout the United States have expressed. And on Sunday, in a Laguna Woods, California church another assault resulted in one death and has been characterized as a politically motivated hate incident by the Orange County Sheriff.

 

Feeling the need to act, Members of the Santa Clarita Human Relations Roundtable, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Congregation Beth Shalom, NAACP Santa Clarita, Higher Vision Church and the Islamic Center of Santa Clarita Valley decided to gather with community members to mark and reflect on this horrible event. They decided to invite the community to An Interfaith Vigil of Prayer and Lament for a Hurting World: Grieving Gun Violence, Racism, and Hate on Sunday, May 22nd at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 7PM PT.

 

“This event quickly materialized as we contacted each other and discussed the Santa Clarita community’s need to heal and move forward after another senseless killing born of racism and hate,” said Jeffrey Thompson, member of the City of Santa Clarita Human Relations Roundtable. “It is important we learn to celebrate our differences rather give way to those preaching mistrust, division and fear.”

 

"The Rev. Christopher Montella of St. Stephen’s stated “People are hurting and we must take a moment as a community to grieve those who lost their lives, share our sadness and then cast our eyes and our efforts toward the future we want to see so that together we can bring about an end to racism, violence and hate in all its forms."                    

Rabbi Jay Siegel adds, “We will not be silent or deterred in light of recent events, we respond with solidarity. We will not be passive in the face of hate and violence, we will actively find ways to increase love and kindness.”

 

“The Muslim community of Santa Clarita stands united with all people of conscience against bigotry, violence, and prejudice. Hate has no place in our society,” said Dr. Omaran Abdeen, Imam at the Islamic Center of Santa Clarita Valley. “In our blessed tradition, the Holy Quran says: O people! We created you from a male and a female, and made you races and tribes so that you may know one another. The best among you in the sight of God is the most righteous. God is most knowledgeable, All-Knowing.”

 

Due to rising concerns, masks are strongly recommended for attendees at the event.

The vigil will be live-streamed and available on our Facebook page @StStephensSCV.
