The Rev. Drew Downs and family will be on vacation July 20 through August 2. They will be in town because they have bought a house and are moving! Their new address is
1013 E Woodburn Drive
Terre Haute IN 47802
Drop them a card! No in-person visits at this time, please! Hi Friends,
Normally when I go away for vacation, it is no big deal. St. Stephen’s is more than capable of functioning for a couple of weeks without me. The pandemic has certainly brought more confusion and frustration to all our lives. I am eager to help us establish some new customs that will serve us in the near future, allowing the community to establish new worship patterns and practices.
As for now, my vacation will run through the Sundays of July 26 and August 2. This week, I will record a brief reflection for each Sunday, which you will find on our YouTube channel and at ststephensth.org/live. I also encourage you to gather virtually with our cathedral Sundays at 10 am for worship at https://www.cccindy.org/live!
I am grateful for your work, Apostles! Keep the faith!
We continue to live in God's embrace through Worship (online), praying for all, protecting the most vulnerable.
Stephanie Alexander and James Greene were married at the church July 11, 2020. They are relative newcomers to St. Stephen’s. They both teach at ISU. Stephanie has 2 children, Lola and Arlo.
Send your congratulations to them at:
525 Dobbs Dell Street
Terre Haute IN 47803
Continuing Financial Giving We understand that the COVID19 epidemic is causing a great deal of stress and confusion for all of us. Without regular in-person gatherings, you may not know how to continue your pledge or even know how to give. And this time of quarantine may be putting a financial strain on you or your family.
The treasurer hopes that you consider continuing to give what you can during this season to help maintain our ministry.
Here are three ways you can do that:
1) Mail a check to the church.
2) Use online banking to have your bank send a check directly.
3) The diocese is now processing online gifts on behalf of the
church. So you may go to https://onrealm.org/indydio/-/give/covid19
and your pledge will come to St. Stephen's.
While the church building is dark, there is light still shining.
Manna From Seven is still distributing food and some hygiene items on Fridays. They are still providing laundry services and putting food in our blessing box.
They could use our help. How? By sending them either a check or a Walmart gift card to help purchase needed items. Your monetary donation is tax deductible.
Please make checks payable to Manna from Seven, Inc and mail to their treasurer: Mike Cahill, 9730 Conner Cr, Terre Haute IN 47802.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Deby Veach at
217-251-7239 or email@example.com Thank you
Manna From Seven is still looking for more coolers to borrow. They will be receiving more dairy products that they need to keep cool. Please call Susan at 812.243.4241 if you have a cooler they can use.
Our church building is closed for until further notice.
