St. Stephen Gift – $250 as a one-time gift

Saint Stephen was one of the first seven deacons ordained by the apostles.  Saint Stephen spoke with wisdom and grace and his proclamation of the kingdom led to him becoming the first martyr.

Many deacons are not called to be martyrs today but most deacons give their lives one day at a time to the service of the Church.  This gift is dedicated to the selfless service of deacons.
