Street parking abounds around the church. On Sundays, there is no fee for metered spaces. Handicap parking spots are located near the corner of N. Tejon St. and Monument St., with wheelchair access located at the northeast corner of the church building.


On Sundays centuries-old rituals and God’s message of hope and love combine to inspire and challenge us to face a noisy, complicated world with grace and love.

We welcome you to participate in and experience a transformative order of worship, beautiful choral music, vibrant congregational singing, and inspiring sounds from the organ. The order for the service--prayers, hymns and lessons—are provided in a bulletin so that all may participate as they wish.

At the 10:30 am service, children join the a member of the clergy for the children’s sermon after Sunday School, and then join their families for the remainder of the service.

Following either service, hospitality hour in the parish hall gives everyone a chance to connect with old friends, make new ones and weave more threads into the fabric of our parish life.

Ushers at the back of the church are available at anytime to answer any questions. We hope you will help us welcome you personally by completing the Contact Us form.

Where were you born?
New York City in the borough of Manhattan.

Why do you go to Church?
Wonder, anger and love.

How long have you been a member of Grace and St. Stephen’s? 23 years

What do you love about Grace and St. Stephen’s?
I love that it is a downtown church that draws a broad spectrum of members from across the Pikes Peak region, especially from the arts and academic communities. I love that Grace has hosted community events for nearly a century with Taylor concerts—especially Advent Lessons and Carols and Britten’s Noye’s Fludde—and Jazz in the Garden. I love the stone walls, the painted ceilings, the shadows, the smell of beeswax, the organ and the liturgy—Rite 1 Eucharist, evensong, compline, the Maundy Thursday Watch. I love that our children grew up in Grace, attending an academically rigorous Sunday School, singing in the children’s and youth choirs, serving God as acolytes and serving the world with adult and peer outreach projects.

How are you involved in the life of Grace and Stephen’s?
I am a former director of Children’s Education and an inveterate church event planner. I represent the deanery on the Diocesan Public Policy Committee. I have worked on the outreach, liturgy, adult education and communications committees. I am married to a chorister.

Is there a passage or image in scripture that carries special meaning for you?
1 Corinthians 13:2 “And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. “

Where do you see God in the world?
In the majesty of human love, patterns, nature and physics.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Take pictures, read, dig dirt, knit and collect many more recipes than I have time to make.

What was the last book you read?
Sacred Ground by Eboo Patel

What is something about you that most people don’t know?
As a child I learned to whoop like a gibbon while living in Sumatra, Indonesia.
