statue of Mary in Dorothy's Garden and a Peace Pole were installed and dedicated in 2006. These were followed with an Icon of St. Stephen in 2007 and in 2016, an Icon of St. Peter Chanel. Dorothy’s Garden was a gift to the parish from Gil Lazzareschi in the memory of his wife Dorothy. The icon of St. Stephen was a gift to the parish from the family of Camilla “Millie” York in her memory. The St. Peter Chanel icon was a gift to our Tongan community from St. Stephen parish.
From the earliest days of the Parish, there has been a high degree of lay person involvement in Parish life. The commitment to service that built the community of St. Stephen from its beginning over 50 years ago is still evident today. The people of St. Stephen are serving the community through more than 30 ministries ranging from Pastoral Council, Finance Council, elementary and adult Faith Formation programs, liturgical, spiritual, and social activity committees. The Parish is constantly encouraging all parishioners to join in and share their time, talents and treasure to build up the community of St. Stephen.
On April 23, 2023, Bishop Michael Barber merged us with Christ the King in Pleasant Hill, creating Christ the King-St. Stephen Parish. Both churches continue to operate as one, but with separate worship sites.
