  1. Thank you, Karen for keeping all of us updated on Father Steven’s services. All of us who knew and loved him deeply appreciate all of your efforts during this very difficult time for us. I am sure that he is truly looking down on your efforts with deep appreciation.

  2. I learned of Father Stephen’s passing on Tuesday of this week. In the brief time I was aquatinted with him, he showed me great kindness, an expressed great interest and concern for my spiritual strength. I myself received a deeply saddening medical diagnosis in March of 2015. Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church, especially it’s symbolism regarding the love of our Father in Heaven, helped me to gain an overwhelming sense that I did have a loving God whom I could find strength and security in. My own father passed away in 2009. He was the man I barely knew, and yet resemble the most in life. I am so thankful for the time that Father Stephen spent with me, and how he helped me to feel welcomed at Saint Joseph’s. I am sure that he has entered the rest of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I will miss him greatly.
