Soul Sisters is St. Stephen’s’ spiritual ministry designed specifically for women. We meet twice monthly on the first Thursday (9:30-11:30 AM) and third Thursday (7:00pm-9:00pm) each month.
Due to continued social distancing directives and <10 people gatherings in Ohio, Soul Sisters is currently meeting virtually for our scheduled meetings via Google Hangout. We’ll meet up with each of us in our own abode with an internet or smart phone connection.
A link or invite will be sent closer to the meetup dates and times If you’d like to be added to the invite list, please email the parish office for more information.
Soul Sisters is a spiritual experience based in Friendship, Encouragement, Support, Gratitude, Hope, and Love, recognizing that together, we are in Unity with God and Each Other, as we share a moment in Life’s journey together as women. Our gathering time is a pause from daily life and its demands to just BE in community and friendship with each other through sharing and caring conversations.
Book Club usually meets on either first or second Wednesday of each month from 6:30-9 pm (schedule below). We meet to share a potluck meal, fellowship, and book discussion. A different parishioner hosts the gathering each time and all are welcome to attend. Contact the parish officefor details on location.
