Our Ministries

Engaging the Community, Inside and Out



The Rock Youth


The Rock Youth is a children and young adult ministry designed to engage and empower the youth at St. Stephen's. Combining curriculum-based bible study with socratic method style conversation and exploration of the ways that Jesus' teachings relate to the modern world, The Rock is like no other youth ministry. Youth at St. Stephen's are encouraged to think critically, respond creatively, and have fun!


Music


Springing out of a now-retired Saturday Jazz Mass, St. Stephen's band and choir is filled with industry professionals and avant-garde creatives. Led by Rev. Jaime, the music at St. Stephen's is a blend of traditional hymns and modern anthems - You're as likely to sing "Don't Worry 'Bout a Thing" as "Sweet Chariot". The Music ministry extends beyond mass with guitar lessons, concerts, and our annual Good Friday Project.


Health Programming


In partnership with local non-profit, Jubilee Consortium ,whose offices are located on our campus, St. Stephen's is able to offer a variety of low-cost, donation based fitness programs ranging from Youth Boxing and Step Aerobics to Zumba. Nutrition and Health are an integral part of our community and of our commitment to serving the larger Hollywood community.


Hope Garden


The garden at St. Stephen's was the result of extended activism and advocacy from the local community. With help from then council-member Eric Garcetti, a bountiful, beautiful source of food and green-space for the neighborhood grew in place of a derelict alley. The garden is maintained in partnership with the LA Episcopal Diocese and its Seeds of Hope Ministry.
