PRIDE 2022
As we mentioned in last week's Estar, St. Stephen's will participate in the 2022 Pride Festival and Parade on Saturday, June 25, along with several other parishes, including Holy Family, Palmer, Grace, St. Andrew's, and Christ Church Cathedral. The theme we have chosen is "This is my body." We have developed a working logo for the event (left image), and Holy Family is working on a design for the float. it will be an exciting day!

There are many ways to get involved this year. We are recruiting volunteers for parade walkers, float builders, booth workers, deliverers, and other important roles.
Epiphany Community Health Outreach Services (ECHOS) is looking for volunteers to distribute food every Tuesday at 7 am and select Saturdays throughout the summer. The mission of ECHOS, located at 9600 S.

Students 15+ can volunteer without an adult.
