Serving Frogtown

St. Stephanus partners with many different organizations to bless and be blessed by our Frogtown community. As firm believers that the 1st Article of our Creed as Christians is that God provides for us all, we believe we can acknowledge and support how God is using non-religious organizations to bring His blessing into the lives of people around us, as well as our direct action to share the Good News of life in Jesus with our neighbors.


Food Partners

Basic Needs Drive - Spring 2021

 

Did you know that Ramsey County has a 10% food insecurity rate? That's about 54,220 people who do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. We believe that also includes access to basic needs for personal hygiene and household cleaning supplies. During the 2021 Lenten season we will be hosting a drive to create small and large boxes of basic need materials that will be given out during Feeding the Dream giveaways this Spring.
