In addition to this Web site, St. Stephen's communicates with parishioners and the larger community in a number of ways:
The Spirit, a weekly newsletter, includes a reflection written by a parishioner or member of the clergy or lay staff; announcements; a calendar and other information.
+ copies are inserted in service bulletins each Sunday
+ copies are placed at Information Central and on Welcome Tables throughout the parish house each week after the Sunday services
+ by email; you may subscribe to receive the reflection each week with a link to a PDF version online (or you can bookmark this page and return to it each week)
+ by First Class mail; for $25 per year (our cost), you may receive this newsletter via First Class mail each week; we mail it on Fridays. Please send a check payable to St. Stephen's with your name and USPS address to the parish office, 6000 Grove Avenue, Richmond, VA 23226.
+ Copies are delivered to Westminster-Canterbury and Cedarfield each week by volunteers; lay visitors also bring copies when they take communion to those unable to come to church.
