 The Dance of the Golden Calf from the Hortus Deliciarum,1167-1185
What is presented in this illustration is a 19th century copy, as the original Hortus
Deliciarum was lost when the owning library was burned in the Siege of
Strasbourg in 1870. "The original was developed for the nuns of the Hohenburg
Abbey in Alsace. The manuscript contained poems, illustrations, and music,
and drew from texts by classical and Arab writers. Interspersed with writings
from other sources were poems by Herrad, addressed to the nuns, almost all of
which were set to music. The most famous portion of the manuscript is the
illustrations, of which there were 336, which symbolised various themes, including
theosophical, philosophical, and literary themes. These works are well regarded."

Diocesan Newsletter for October 7

October 6  Letter from Bishop Jennifer

Diocesan Reopening Plan - October 5 Revision

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 
and your pledge will come to St. Stephen's.

This Season of Coronavirus
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and after much deliberation and direction of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis, we suspended the use of our building for in-person Sunday worship.
Read the Regathering Plan 
While many churches in our community opened this summer, Vigo County’s infection rate rose dramatically in July and August. This has put some of our plans on hold. You may read more in the letter from our Regathering Team

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    Thank you

Our church building is closed for until further notice. 

Drew and Dennis are available by phone and email 
see below. 
Dennis will check mail periodically 
and deposit offerings at least twice a month.
