The following is a list of current outreach opportunities:
|Fri, April 23||Loaves & Fishes||Please join us to help cook and serve the Loaves & Fishes meal at Woodlake Church in Richfield. This is a great opportunity for St. Stephen's individuals (especially families!) to participate in an outreach ministry experience. Thank you in advance for volunteering your time. We look forward to serving with you!|

|Fri, April 28||EpiscoBuilders||Our next service day with EpiscoBuilders is April 28 at a townhouse complex in Heritage Park. We'd love for YOU to join us as we work on indoor finishing work (and maybe some outdoor work if the weather permits!) This is a fun way to serve, experience fellowship with others and learn a new skill. Volunteering is now easier than ever with an online sign-up.||Jim Bizal|
|Donations Due April 30||66 West Apartments||Opening the Doors at 66 West|
In 2014, our parish was stunned to learn that, on any given night, 200-300 homeless young adults live in the southwest suburbs. After asking ourselves some hard questions, our community joined with other congregations to support Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative in the development of 66 West Apartments. We are pleased to announce that in May 2017, 66 West will open its doors to the first of 39 residents! We are committed to helping make these apartments a home by outfitting 10 of the apartments with new household items. To this end, we are seeking donations, through April 30, of both household good and funds to help us meet this goal. Read more and print an updated shopping list.
