175th Harry and Nils.jpg

On October 8, St. Stephen's 175th anniversary service filled the church with parishioners and friends! It was a lovely day, the culmination of a year of events celebrating not only our 175th anniversary, but the town of Armonk's as well. Above, Father Nils (XVIII Rector) is joined by Father Harry Abernathy (XVI Rector), who preached the sermon, and sported a stole made for him by a St. Stephen's Sunday School class of the mid 1990s.
