About Us

Due to COVID-19 our regular Masses are on hold.  Instead we have an outdoor Sunday 9:30 am Mass and a once a month Saturday 4:00 pm Mass on the 1st Saturday of the month.  We are continuing meeting in the parking lot even though indoor services are now allowed.  You can listen to the Mass in the comfort of your car by tuning to FM 106.7 or bring your lawn chair and join us outdoors in the seating area.

St. Stephen Masses are now live-streamed on our Facebook page, so if you can't join us in person, you can join us from the comfort of your home.

CTK has additional parking lot Masses as well as weekday Masses live-streamed on both CTK Facebook page and

CTKPH YouTube channel.  

St. Stephen Family – our parish records are out of date.  People move, people change emails and phone numbers.  Children are born and others move out.  Please take a few minutes to update your information for our records.

We would love to hear from you. Feel free to give us a shout and connect with us.

St. Stephen is a small, but vibrant, Catholic community located in the hills behind Palos Verdes Mall in Walnut Creek.  We share staff and clergy with Christ the King Parish in Pleasant Hill.



A MESSAGE

​​​​​​​

FROM FR. PAULSON

Dear Friends:

The past year presented many challenges for our parish. As a result of the pandemic, we were forced to close the church to indoor Masses and we lost an important source of income – our parish hall rentals. Under the leadership of Chris Lang, Mike Milani and many others, the parish responded by moving to outdoor masses and acquiring the equipment to make it work. We later added live broadcasting and streaming on Facebook. Communication was improved by updating the website and adding weekly email newsletters. Parish meetings and ministries converted to “virtual” formats.


Our parishioners continued to give generously despite the changed conditions – plate contributions for the year were 94% of amounts we budgeted before the pandemic. Operating costs were restructured and reduced to meet the new circumstances – and we continued to rely on our volunteers for office staff, bookkeeping and many other functions. As a result, we were able to retain our three part time employees and still end the year “in the black” with operating income exceeding operating costs.


Looking forward to 2021, we are still faced with many uncertainties – when can we move back to regular indoor Masses (and at what percent of capacity), how quickly will Mass attendance recover, when will parish hall rentals resume? As a result, we have budgeted breakeven results of operations for 2021.


We are also making investments now for the future of the parish - when we return to indoor Masses and beyond. The church sound system, which has been an issue for years, is being upgraded with new speakers and wireless microphones and the old wood siding on the church is being replaced.


Thank you for your continued support of the parish.
