ABOUT SAINT STEPHEN'S ANGLICAN CHURCH

Saint Stephen’s is a “parish in the classical Anglican tradition”, but what does that mean? First and foremost, it means that our spiritual life is focused on the Bible, and the confession of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. We use the King James Version (the “Authorised Version”) in our services and our study groups—and not just because it’s “traditional”. For a thorough explanation of why we use the KJV (with other translations as necessary and helpful), see “Why We Use the King James Version”.

Secondly, being a “parish in the classical Anglican tradition” means that our liturgical life is focused on the Book of Common Prayer.  Holy Communion is featured prominently on our service schedule, of course: Sunday services are at 8:00 AM and 9:15 AM, and we have weekday services, too. (See the Schedule of Services.) But Saint Stephen’s is one of the few parishes in the country which still regularly presents the service of Morning Prayer, most Sundays at 11:00 AM. (The 11 AM service on the first Sunday of the month is Holy Communion.)

It follows from our Bible– and Prayer Book–centered life that community outreach plays an important part in the life of the Parish. Our clergy and pastoral care staff make regular visits to shut–ins and residents of local hospitals and assisted living facilities. The Parish also actively supports a number of local charities: At Jacob’s Well, which serves the homeless mentally ill of Baltimore; Heifer International, which provides live farm animals to families as a source of food and income; and the Christ Child Society of Baltimore, which provides practical support to families with children.

Finally, being a “parish in the classical Anglican tradition” means that we have fun. Our annual Cookie Walk in December, and British Garden Party and Fête in May, are neighbourhood legends. The Fall and Spring Picnics are always well attended and well enjoyed.

 

Please stop by for one of our services or other parochial activities: we think you’ll enjoy what you find—and find what you need. God bless.
