St. Katharine Drexel Altar

Fr. Murphy’s 25th Anniversary Celebration

Please save the date as we plan to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Ordination to the Sacred Priesthood of Father Christopher D. Murphy at Saint Stephen the Martyr Church. The celebration will take place after all Masses the weekend of May 22-23, 2021. Blessings to Fr. Murphy in his priesthood.

In honor of Fr. Murphy’s Silver Jubilee in May, a spiritual bouquet is being collected for this special occasion. A spiritual bouquet is a collection of devotional acts and prayers said on behalf of someone and their intentions. Examples of devotional acts are Rosaries, Novenas, Litanies, Stations of the Cross, Acts of Charity or Penance, Chaplets of Divine Mercy, and hours in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament to name a few.

Please consider offering up some prayers or sacrifices in honor of this occasion so we can obtain graces for him through our prayers as he continues to minister to our St. Stephen’s and St. Katherine Drexel communities. Please contact Jackie Lorzing with your intentions
