Patron Saint Fundraiser

One of our on-going fundraisers – Make a donation to the Church on your loved one’s Feast Days in their Patron Saint’s name.

On Dec. 27th, we celebrate the names day of one of our parish gentlemen:

Protomartyr Stephen was the eldest of the seven deacons, appointed by the Apostles themselves, and therefore he is called “archdeacon.” He was the first Christian martyr, and he suffered for Christ when he was about thirty. In the words of Asterias, he was “the starting point of the martyrs, the instructor of suffering for Christ, the foundation of righteous confession, since Stephen was the first to shed his blood for the Gospel.”

A donation has been made to the St. Aidan Orthodox Church Elevator Fund in the name of Protomartyr Stephen.
