St. Stephen's is proud to be working to rekindle a welcoming, compassionate, creative Episcopal community in Eagle Rock! For the past year, St. Barnabas Episcopal Church has been dormant, its doors closed and its congregation in flux.
Father Jaime, an Eagle Rock community member, has been asked by the Bishop and the Diocese to help reinvigorate the church through worship and innovative connection to this wonderful neighborhood. We're excited to explore the ways St. Stephen's can help rebuild St. Barnabas so that it and the community of Eagle Rock can thrive!
You can keep up with latest from St. Barnabas here.
It was a tearful Sunday as we said "see you soon" to our dear friend the Rev. Holly Cardone and wished her well as she begins her new role as rector of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Fullerton.
This community has been forever transformed by the love, care, and leadership that Holly has offered in her past 5 years of service alongside Father Jaime. While we will miss her dearly, we can't wait to see and support the amazing community and initiatives she will lead in Fullerton.
All of our love and best wishes, Holly!
Each year on Good Friday, the St. Stephen's community comes together before the bright, beautiful Resurrection Sunday to reflect on and engage the beauty that can be found in the crucifixion. Life, Death, Pain, Sacrifice, and Redemption serve as thematic lenses for music, spoken word, short storytelling, and visual arts. Join us as we explore the meaning of Good Friday and celebrate the immense talent and creativity in our community.
If you'd like to contribute artistically to the evening, email Padre Jaime at email@example.com.
St. Stephen's is a community where all voices are heard. This is just a taste of what our community cares about.
