About

Our Patron Saint, St. Stephen

Stephen, full of the holy spirit, looked up and saw the glory of God.

St Stephen lived approximately in year 30 AD and his name means “crown” in Greek. The apostles ordained him one of the first seven deacons to look after the widows.

God worked many miracles through St Stephen and he spoke with such wisdom and grace that many of his hearers became followers of Jesus. His enemies were furious to see how successful Stephen’s preaching was and they laid a plot to kill him.

In the book of Acts of the Apostles, St Stephen’s speech to the Sanhedrin is the longest. After giving this speech, his enemies stoned him to death and he became the first Martyr of the Roman Catholic Church.

St. Stephen is the Patron Saint of Bricklayers and Stone Masons. The statue of St Stephen in our parish carries a Bible and a loaf of Bread. The bible reflects his role as a deacon and the wise preaching he was doing for the followers of Jesus. The loaf of bread reflects his role in distributing food to the widows and the poor, his main role as a deacon.
