Additional comments re: compensation, benefits and housing.

The rectory is located at 302 College Street in Oxford. It is 2 blocks NW of the church. The house is on a nice corner lot with a great deck and nice fenced backyard. It is a nice family sized home. Downstairs has a separate living room, dining room, study / library, bedroom with attached dressing area and bathroom, a small 2-piece powder room, breakfast nook, kitchen and laundry room. Upstairs has a nice sized bonus space at the top of the stairs - plenty big enough for an upstairs TV room or play area or other multi-purpose space - on either side are two bedrooms with a connecting bath. There is ample floored space on the third floor for seasonal storage, etc. which is accessed by built-in stairs.

Liturgical style and practice

Each week we gather to celebrate the ancient rite of Holy Eucharist on Sundays, Morning Prayer on Thursdays, and Centering Prayer on Wednesday evenings. We are committed to contemplative prayer practices, creation care, and service to our community.


Active, faith filled members and engaged leadership.  The town of Oxford is growing and there is ongoing potential for growth.  St Stephen's tries to live out our mission to share “the Gospel and love of Christ Jesus through service to our Church, community, and world.”
