Parish News March 21st
Dear St. Stephen’s church family,
Although this ancient Song of Solomon may not exactly match our seasonal reality, we are grateful for the coming of Spring:
My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. 2:10-12

Parish Cycle of Prayer:
This month we pray for all who are restricted in their ability to get out and about, who may be isolated because of mobility issues or transportation. We give thanks for the Friends of St. Stephen’s visiting ministry, and pray that we may continue to be strengthened to love and serve one another and the community in Jesus’ name.
We pray for Karen Helfrich and for Lorna and Donald Hendry.
In Christ’s love,
