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.

Taylor Memorial Concerts

Taylor Memorial Concerts

For over a century, Grace and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church has sought to offer music of the highest quality in both services and concerts. With Alice Bemis Taylor’s gift in 1928 of a magnificent pipe organ and endowment to provide concerts in memory of her husband, Frederick Morgan Taylor, a vast richness of musical opportunities became possible.

The Taylor Memorial Concert Series has presented many world-renowned organists, singers, chamber ensembles, and choirs in concerts and services to national and international acclaim. Many premieres of major choral works have taken place in the beautiful Gothic nave of Grace and St. Stephen’s through this program. All Taylor Concerts are free and open to the public.

The 2016-2017 Taylor Concert Series begins on Sun., Sept 18 and will run through May 2017. For a downloadable file of the complete season's schedule, please click here.
