St. Stephen's is a community with a rich history.
We were the first community in Portland to welcome African-Americans to the Episcopal Church in the 1920's. We were home to Japanese-Americans who returned to Portland after internment in the 1940's. We were the first church in Portland to lead a marriage ceremony for an interracial couple in the 1960's. We called the first woman rector to an Episcopal church in Oregon, and we started the first chapter of Integrity, the LGBTQ advocacy group in the Episcopal Church. We have always served the marginalized, and we continue to work for justice and equality for all of God's people.
We are part of the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement.
Our Presiding Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, shares a vision about what it means to be an Episcopalian.
