Welcome to the
Roman Catholic Community of
Saint Stephen the First Martyr.



Anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one knows that the pain does not go away quickly. Deacon Mark is exploring the need/interest in having a support program at St. Stephen Parish. The program is 8-weeks in length and the time would be determined based on those interested in participating.    

If you or someone you know could use some help finding your way “through the darkness”, please contact  Deacon Mark at 919-499-3772 or deaconmaw@gmail.com

“In the tender compassion of our God, the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”  (Luke Chapter 1)



Handbell Choir

Want to join the choir but can’t really sing? Or you sing well but would like to do something different? St. Stephen’s Handbell Choir is a great way to get your musical satisfaction. We are looking for 1 or 2 new members. We practice the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesday of each month at 7 pm and we play at the Easter Vigil, on Christmas Eve and a few other times during the year. Prior experience is not necessary.
