WHAT'S NEW
Throughought 2017, St. Stephen and St. Bede will commemorate ​​​​500 years of the Reformation.  We have planned a number of activities through the year, including learning the music that Martin Luther wrote and appears in our hymnals. On Sundays we will feature one of Luther's hymns.  Many thanks to Carole Grier for her leadership in this project!   Meantime, watch for details of other programs honoring the 500th anniversary in the new year​!
This week’s Luther Hymn:
ELW 784    Grant Peace   
MY NEIGHBOUR'S HOME IS MY HOME​

Starting April 18,  Muslims and Christians in Winnipeg will spend a lot of time in each others homes as they get to know one another better.

A four-week workshop will bring the two faith communities together in one space to share their understandings of neighbourhood, stewardship, justice and the place of women in community.

Paint Night at St. Stephen and St. Bede was a tremendous success!  The fundraiser on Monday evening, February 6, had a great turnout, was lots of fun and produced many fine pieces of art. See our Photo Gallery for more pictures of this event and more examples of faith in action.
Thanks to the Altar Guild, we now proudly display photos of our honorary clergy at St. Stephen and St. Bede.

    

During a recent visit from ​​Canon Jason Mosuke of Central Buganda, we learned that our companion parish of Galitea is in need of a “boda boda” (aka scooter) so that the local parish rector can visit his parish members. We have decided to raise the money - about $2,000 - for them to purchase it. Please make your donation by marking “boda boda” on your offering envelope.  Visit our More You Can Do web page to learn about other opportunities to give and support.
