To Teach Who Christ is Campaign
Passing On Our Faith.....Building For Our Future
Our parish is in the midst of an important capital campaign. Over the past few weeks parishioners have received information on the "To Teach Who Christ Is' campaign, to be entered into by all parishes in the Archdiocese over the next three years. This archdiocesan effort to provide resources to hand on the gift of our faith presents an opportunity for our parish to work toward building the facilities that will enable us to enhance our parish ministries.
Because this is so important a project for St. Stephen's future, we invite you to prayerfully consider a financial commitment to our project.
Please call the parish office at 708-342-2400 for more information or click on the link below to fill out your commitment for the parish.
Commitments can be dropped off or mailed to the parish office. Our mailing address is:
St. Stephen, Deacon & Martyr Catholic Church
17500 S. 84th Avenue

Thank you for your consideration of this campaign and God bless.
