Welcome to St. Stephen Protomartyr Catholic Church
Our mission statement is: "Following the example of our patron St. Stephen, we are called to be witnesses of God's love and to be a faith-filled, reconciling parish."
Welcome to St. Stephen Protomartyr Catholic School
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. In cooperation with parents, who are the primary educators of their children, St. Stephen Protomartyr Catholic School exists to provide all the members of the school community — students, parents, teachers, staff, and fellow parishioners — with opportunities to grow in faith and to work toward building God’s kingdom. Our philosophy is built around the three actions of our mission statement — to learn, to live, and to love.
Protecting God's Children
St. Stephen Protomartyr Catholic Church and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program (Protecting God's Children). The 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.
