St. Stephen's Episcopal Church
In Boston's South End
"St. Stephen's and its community support each other in doing God's work.
Together, we bridge the gap between urban and suburban, and between rich and poor."
We celebrate the Eucharist every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Services are conducted in English and En Español.
Youth Jobs Rally
The Youth Jobs Coalition hosted the 6th annual Youth Jobs Rally on February 18th. Young people and adult allies from across the state marched from Old South Church to the State House to advocate for an increase to the statewide youth jobs budget. St. Stephens' community organizers brought over 25 people to the rally.
Researchers, like those at Northeastern's Center For Labor Market Studies have found that providing teens with quality employment opportunities reduces their participation in violent activities, and greatly improves their educational and employment outcomes.

170 volunteers from 24 partner organizations helped beautify the Blackstone Innovation School on Monday January 19th. It was a wonderful turnout! The day included a variety of service projects followed by an afternoon workshop about leadership development facilitated by community organizers from St. Stephen's and B-PEACE for Jorge. The teachers, administrators and staff of the school were extremely grateful for all of the good work that was accomplishment. |See more photos.|
