A New Chapter for Deacon Jeff
Best wishes to Deacon Jeff Moretzsohn as he begins a new chapter in ministry. In August, Jeff will begin serving at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia.
St. Stephen’s will be a Center for training the Vocational Diaconate, for Chaplaincy and Pastoral Counseling, and for Ministry to the Homeless. Located at 10th and Ludlow Streets, in a busy Center City neighborhood, St Stephen’s has created a community outreach program; with no services on Sundays, “St. Stephen’s instead serves as a four-day-a-week resource center for the community, offering midweek meditation liturgies, performing arts space, and social service referrals to people who are homeless, some of whom spend hours there playing cards, reading, and even napping.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)
