Spiritual growth is endless: there is no limit to building your relationship with God. As a community, we offer several ways to deepen your connection with the Lord and provide support for members of St Stephen’s.

Church + Family

Everyone is welcome at St Stephen’s. You will notice we do not have a “Family Service” because every service welcomes families. For our youngest parishioners, we provide Soft Spot Bags with crayons, a children’s lesson to color, and a clipboard with paper. Children may attend Sunday School during the 10:00 AM service and join the congregation after the Creed to attend communion.


A valued rite of passage for young parishioners who wish to confirm their baptism. Those who wish to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church must attend 8–10 classes before Confirmation at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Next class sessions will begin Spring 2023.


People of all ages who wish to become a member of our congregation may be baptized. To prepare, participants will meet with a priest for instruction about the Christian faith, the history of the church in general, and the Episcopal Church.

Stream Team

Students in high school can be a part of the Stream Team: a video group that streams, edits, and develops content with the vestry working groups to bring the church’s services online. This volunteer opportunity helps communicate the vital information about the parish to members of the parish community. If you are interested in volunteering, contact [email protected].


We are here for you. The Prayer Team is in regular contact with and provides continual prayer for the parish, community, and more. Whether you would like to receive prayers for yourself, others, or a situation in the world, we welcome prayer requests. Our Soul Team provides additional care and assistance to those who need it. Our Earth + Altar ministry cares for our garden and provides nourishment to the underserved.

Prayer + Healing Ministry

Our Prayer + Healing Ministry pray for those who request prayers for themselves, others, or a situation in the world. At live Sunday Services, the Healing Team gathers at the Votive Shrine to the Blessed Mother to offer prayers and the laying on of hands for healing.

If you would like your intercessions to be added to the Prayer List, please contact the Venerable Dorothy Jones.

Prayer Request + Light a Candle

Votive candles that burn at the Votive Shrine to the Blessed Mother represent prayer requests that people make for themselves, someone else, or a situation in the world. If you would like to light a candle, please contact the office. We will light a candle and send a picture if you cannot attend the church in person.

Soul Team

The Soul Team provides additional support services to members of our St Stephen’s community, such as meals, cards, tokens of care and appreciation, rides to the doctor, groceries, prescription deliveries, and more.

Earth + Altar Garden

Connect with the earth and each other as we till the soil, plant the seeds, and tend to the year-round garden. Produce is donated to local food pantries at Ritter House and in Marin City. All members are welcome and encouraged to participate.


Guided group gatherings allow us to bond over shared interests while we explore the world around us, the Word of God in front of us, and the light of the Lord within us. Everyone is welcome. Learn more about these groups and how to join.

Please note: Due to current events, many groups are on hold or over Zoom. We look forward to resuming in-person gatherings as soon as health and safety guidelines allow.
