PILGRIM VOCATION PROGRAM- The Pilgrim Vocation Icon Program is taking place at St. Stephen’s and in every Byzantine Catholic Parish in the United States. Everyone in the parish is invited to pray for and encourage others within the church that they might respond generously to God’s call in their lives. We need generous men and women to minister among us as priests, deacons, monastics and sisters. We need people like you to pray for and encourage them. Sign up today to have the Pilgrim Vocation Icon in your home. You will be greatly blessed. Please sign up on the sheet located at the entrance to the church.
