Please join us on for the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. It is usually the first Friday of each month, however there is an added date for November.
You may sign up for a 30-minute or 60-minute time slot. Your selected time will be confirmed by email. Thank you for giving this time in prayer to our Lord. We have much to pray for during this time of stress and suffering in our State as well as in the world. The Lord has also blessed us with so much, and what better way to say thank you, than to spend time with God, in the presence of The Blessed Sacrament. Our last turnout was well attended. Let’s make this one even better.

“Centered in the loving presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, Saint Stephen is a welcoming Catholic Community. Inspired by the Word of God and attentive to the challenges of our time, we are committed to the spiritual growth and faith formation of all the community. Following the example of Jesus we respond to those in need, especially the poor and weak, and so become Eucharist to each other.”
Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops Before voting, Catholics are called to consider a wide range of issues important to the common good, weighing each according to its moral importance. It is beneficial to research the ballot ahead of time and gather the facts for every proposal and race. This guide offers information about Catholic teaching and questions regarding current issues to assist voters in evaluating candidate positions or political party platforms. Consider using these tools for prayer and reflection before casting your ballot.
