A great day unveiling our renovations!

St. Stephen's unveiled its fully refurbished sanctuary interior this past Sunday, September 11th. Every single square inch of the interior has been renovated, with all of the old plaster cracks mended, all of the wall surfaces strengthened for new plaster, and new paint everywhere. There have also been some liturgical re-orderings: the old altar rail from the 1960s has been replaced with a brand-new one, there is a new altar hanging, and the font has been relocated to the back of the church, which is traditionally the location for a font in church (signifying that baptism is the first part of the Christian journey). 

As well as worshipping in our newly-renovated sanctuary for the first time since February this year, we also blessed the backpacks and brains of our scholars and grade-school teachers.
