About Us

Rejoicing in a Risen Savior – Serving a Living Lord – Awaiting a Coming King

Bishop McConnell installed Rev. Esposito as our new Priest on Sunday, March 31, 2019. Confirmation and a Baptism were also part of this special day, as well as sending our Deacon, Julie Smith, out to serve at a new church.

Mission

St. Stephen’s mission is to imitate Christ in everything we do.

History

St. Stephen’s has been a witness to Christ in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh for over 120 years. It began as a mission of Calvary Episcopal Church in Shadyside. It has a beautiful old-fashioned sanctuary built in 1903 and a large parish hall with classrooms, a dining room, and a library. Over the years the surrounding community has gone through many changes, and St. Stephen’s continues to offer the love of Jesus to all who seek a better life.

St. Stephen’s is the local Episcopal church for the following communities and neighborhoods: Edgewood, Swissvale, Churchill, Wilkinsburg, Regent Square, and Point Breeze. We welcome visitors from those neighborhoods and beyond.
