 2013 Lenten Organ Recitals

St. Stephen’s continues its fine tradition of presenting a wonderful weekly program during the solemn season of Lent. Each Wednesday, we present a 30-minute organ recital at 11:30 am (featured organists listed below), then an Ecumenical Lenten Service at Noon. A soup-and-sandwich luncheon follows, with a suggested $4 free-will offering, proceeds to benefit local charities. Please join us.
