Thanks to Michael Ramsey, St. Stephen's now has a fully functioning handicap ramp again! Although we've had a ramp since the 1990s, it had fallen into disrepair and become dangerous and could not be used. Michael Ramsey, a life-long member of this parish and a senior at Byram Hills High School, decided to reconstruct the ramp for his Eagle Scout project.
Michael rallied around him his family, including mother Kathie (who is Chair of the Scout Troop Committee) and father Craig, and raised almost $7,000 from the parish and the community to reconstruct the ramp: new decking, new railings and new fascias.
Not only does the ramp function well again, but it looks really great! Thank you, Michael!
The parish dedicated and blessed the ramp Sunday, September 11th, as part of morning worship.
