We are a small, growing, progressive congregation in Eastern Baltimore. We are not part of any denomination, and we welcome people from across all religious and denominational lines to worship, pray, and serve with us in the catholic tradition. We meet for worship at 4:30pm each Sunday at First and St. Stephen's UCC 6915 York Road, Baltimore, MD, 21212.

As our About Us page says:

We welcome everyone to our mass, our sacraments, and our community: No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Thank you from your deacons

Dear St. Sebastian Community,

As we marvel that it has been one month since our ordination, we want to say Thank You to each of you, as it is through your prayers, your encouragement, and your support that we now call ourselves deacons.

This journey that we have begun would have been impossible without you, as it was God working through you to call us to this office. Our lives have been enriched and blessed through you, and we know that they will continue to do so.

We also recognize that an incredible amount of time and energy was put into making our ordination day so amazing, for that we also say thank you. Your efforts allowed us to focus on the amazing event that was happening that day, and we never even had to consider the mechanics or details of making it all come together. Your support and love made our day powerful, prayerful, gratifying, and joyous! We thank you for this, from the bottom of our hearts.

We have all come to St. Sebastian with unique stories, with different challenges, following our own crooked, convoluted paths. And yet we each find ourselves here, at home in our tiny community, worshiping together and reveling in the love of God that unites us under a Spirit of praise, of joy, of support, and of welcoming. We ask for your continued prayers and support as we grow into our new roles.

Blessings and peace to you,
Deacon Janet Price and Deacon Jon Kmetz
