Chaplaincy and Parish Information

St. Stephen is an inclusive community with a mission to develop the spiritual potential of all students as much as their academic and social potentials.

Academic programs at St. Stephen exist within a spiritual orientation based on the Catholic faith. The tone of the school reflects a theme of respect and responsibility, a collaborative approach to problem solving, and a community focus made up of students, staff, parents, parish, and the wider community.

As of means towards the development of a Catholic Graduate, the following are encouraged:

    • A significant consciousness, in both teachers and students, of their responsibility to express Christian faith through what they say and do;

    • Close cooperation between the home, the school and the parish community;

    • An atmosphere of mutual tolerance, trust and respect;

    • Positive discipline: a sense of order and student responsibility:

    • A spirit of social concern: locally, nationally, and internationally;

    • Strong student-teacher relationships;

    • Faculty involvement in all school affairs;

    • Common prayer experiences for staff and students, especially in the form of liturgical celebration; and

    • Grade level retreats.

The school comes together to celebrate school masses with its affiliated parishes, St. Joseph Catholic Parish, led by pastor Fr. Paul Hogan, and St. Francis of Assisi Parish led by Fr. Asisclo Podelino. A school chapel is also accessible to staff and students for personal reflection, and weekly masses.
