*** We do want to know when you are in the hospital. If you or your family member is a patient at Beloit Memorial Hospital and you wish a visit from a priest or parish member (with the Eucharist), you MUST specifically tell the hospital staff to list you as a member of St. Stephens every time you are admitted. Privacy laws prohibit the hospital from doing so without your permission. If you are in another area hospital, please call St. Stephen’s Parish Office (676-2241) or have the hospital staff notify us if you wish a visit. Thank you.
Remembering Our Loved Ones In Death and In Life’
In each Mass that is said in our parish, and most parishes, the priest has a personal intention or prayer remembrance, These intentions are usually requested by parish members and are often for deceased loved ones. The intention can also be for a significant event such as a wedding, birthday, anniversary or any special intention, person or need. For this request, a small stipend is offered, presently $10.00. To schedule a Mass or Masses call the parish office-608-676-2241.
