On September 23, 2007 the parishioners of St. Stephen the Protomartyr of South Plainfield, NJ and our pastor, Fr. Stephen Tewfik, welcomed His Grace Bishop ANTOUN for the Dedication of our new facilities.
The day began with a beautiful Hierarchical Divine Liturgy followed by a blessing of the new facilities.
St. Stephen’s was founded by converts from the Episcopalian Church in 1978. Continued growth since then resulted in the just completed project. The new expansion includes doubling current worship space and adding a 10,000 square foot addition, which includes: a new social hall, a large, column-free basement for church school, a commercial-grade kitchen and ample parking.
All this could not have happened without the blessing of Sayidna ANTOUN and the dedicated support and hard work of Fr. Stephen and our wonderful parishioners. May God grant them many years!! If your travel plans take you to Central New Jersey, please come and worship with us!
