Roof Repair

Work is starting on the St. Stephen's roof, weather permitting. There will be some equipment in and around the church while this work is being done. For safety, please avoid going near the work while it is being performed. It will be removed or moved to the parking lot on weekends. This work will last approximately three weeks, though not necessarily consecutive weeks.  For questions, please contact Henry Burruss at 525-4312 or h.burruss@yahoo.com.
