Welcome to St. Stephen Protomartyr Catholic School

OUR SCHOOL MISSION: "At St. Stephen Protomartyr Catholic School we learn, live, and love in a Catholic, Christian environment. Belief in Jesus and living the gospel values of our faith is the cornerstone of our philosophy as a community."

Safe Environment Program

This program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries.

The Martyrdom of Saint Stephen Proto = First Martyr

Saint Stephen was one of the first ordained deacons of the Church. He was also the first Christian martyr. The Greek word from which we derive the English word martyr literally means witness. In that sense, every Christian is called to bear witness to Jesus Christ, in both their words and their actions. Not all are asked to shed their blood.
