Our Christmas Eve service begins at 7 p.m., and will include songs, scripture and celebration, with the Rev. Canon Ted Babcock as celebrant.
Everyone is welcome to join us for this celebration of Christ’s birth! It’s a wonderful time for visitors to attend, especially if you are curious about the Episcopal Church.
There will be no service on Christmas Day, and the church office will be closed Dec. 24 and 25.

St. Stephen’s invites all members of the parish and surrounding parishes to an Evensong on the 3rd Sunday of Advent — 5 p.m. Dec. 13.
In the Anglican tradition, of which the Episcopal Church in the United States is a part, Evensong is an evening prayer service in which many of the prayers are sung. The service will take 40 minutes to an hour.
Members of the community are also invited to attend — especially people interested in becoming Episcopalian, or in St. Stephen’s.
A light meal will be served after the service. If you are planning to stay for the meal, please call the church office at 412-664-9379 no later than Wednesday, Dec. 9, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
(You don’t need to RSVP if you’re only attending the service, but it would be helpful.)
