Welcome to St. Stephens! Our parish, of about 100 families, is clustered with the three churches in Beloit. We are a parish with great spirit, and have many parishioners who are involved in the general upkeep of the parish, teaching our children Faith Formation, and offering a number of social and fundraising events . We boast of being a “Catholic Faith Community,” taking pride in our Catholic witness to the Clinton Community.
Join us for the Eucharist or for any parish event.
Monsignor Dan's Weekly Message
From the Desk of Monsignor Dan
Thoughts for the Week
Catechists and students are meeting here at St. Stephen’s on Wednesday evenings to study, discuss and celebrate our Catholic faith. Thank you to Mr. Steve Zahn and all who assist him with this important parish religious education program. For more information on how to become involved on Wednesday evenings just call our parish office.
October is Respect Life Month and also the Month of the Holy Rosary. This beautiful prayer is filled with our Blessed Mother Mary’s special graces to lift our hearts and minds to the Lord. Let us make a special effort to include the rosary in our own personal prayer life as a daily way to keep one another’s welfare in our thoughts and words.
Next weekend will provide another opportunity to make a donation for hurricane Florence relief. Our brothers and sisters are still slowly recovering from this devastating catastrophe in the Carolinas. Simply mark your offering with the words, hurricane relief. Thank you.
God Bless you!
