Welcome to St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Anoka, Minnesota!

Hospitality, warmth, and friendly reception are high priorities around here.  For a snapshot of parish life at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church, we invite you to view the
2015-16 Annual Report (PDF) .  You will find highlights of some of our ministries as well as a report on the financial resources of the parish for the time period
of July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016.

St. Stephen’s celebrates the sacraments with joy-filled liturgical celebrations that lead the worshipping assembly to the full, conscious and active participation called for by the Catholic Church.  Sunday Mass, Weekday Mass, Baptisms, Funerals, Weddings, bi-weekly Reconciliation services and bi-yearly Masses with Anointing are among the many liturgical opportunities here. Together with additional devotional prayer times, there is a discipline and rhythm to our prayer life that deepens the spirituality of all who praise and worship God here.

Our parish offers various faith formation, sacramental preparation and youth ministry programs for children, teens and adults. We are all called to discipleship and to make Jesus Christ known and loved. All are invited to participate in opportunities for understanding the faith, celebrating sacraments, building community and giving service.

Pastoral Care exists to assist the priests in visits to the homebound, sick, elderly and anyone in need of spiritual or emotional care. St. Stephen’s has many trained, compassionate volunteers who help with these ministries.

Calvary Cemetery is owned and operated by St. Stephen’s Catholic Church.  It is located on the west end of the city of Anoka on the north side of Highway 10.  A beautiful granite Columbarium was added to the cemetery in the spring of 2015.

Please take some time to browse through our web site. Check out the Mass times, meet the staff, discover St. Stephen’s School, learn about our Faith Formation offerings, and explore other aspects of our parish.

All are welcome!
