Welcome to St. Stephen's. St. Stephen's in-the-Field Church seeks to know Christ, to share Christ, and to serve Christ, recognizing his presence in all people, and reaching out in love to each other and to the world around us.
When St. Stephen’s in-the-Field Episcopal Church needed help cleaning up its half-acre Community Garden, they did what any citizen in need would do: they enlisted the help of the U.S. Marines.
On Saturday, June 11, U.S. Marine Staff Sergeant Juan Soto and Lance Corporal Zachary Duffy brought 30 Marine recruit trainees to the church to tackle a major clean-up of its overgrown garden, which is used by senior residents who live in apartment homes behind the church.

In 1999 the Episcopal Church Foundation wrote a report called ‘The Zacchaeus Project’. Here is what they wrote in their introduction to the report:
“About 2,000 years ago in the city of Jericho, a short man named Zacchaeus climbed up in a sycamore tree so that he could get a clear view of Jesus. What motivated Zacchaeus to climb that tree? Being short, he had become accustomed to having to work for a clear view when there was a crowd. But there were other factors. His search for a vantage point may have been a longing – a search for change and a different and better perspective for his life. With this view, an astonishing new possibility arose. He saw Jesus. That perspective became life-giving.
