St Stephen’s COVID-19 Important Notice 

We have developed two policies to address the risks of the highly contagious delta variant. First, we will inform parishioners promptly by email if there has been a potential exposure at the campus. Second, we will now require all people who attend in-person services or other church events to be fully vaccinated (in addition to all wearing masks indoors). At this point the vaccination requirement will be enforced using the honor system. Churches in San Francisco are required to check vaccination status, and it is possible that we will begin that practice as well once we learn more.

 

NAVE PRAYERS & THE OFFICE

 

Sanctuary Prayers   |   The church is once again open during the week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM for personal prayer. Morning Prayer is said on Monday at 8:45AM.

Office hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Please call the office first.
