St. Stephen - The story behind the school's name.
Stephen was one of the great men of faith in the early church and the first Christian Martyr. Our school is named after this great saint.
In those early days, Stephen cared for the neglected and marginalized people of the society. Stephen was able to work miracles among the people. Rooted in jealousy, some Jews falsely accused Stephen and convinced other people that Stephen was speaking against God.
They took hold of Stephen and brought him before the powerful Jewish rulers. Stephen stood before them and was not afraid to speak the truth. Then he accused the men, and their forefathers of hurting and killing the prophets and even of killing Jesus. This infuriated the rulers and they rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him to death.
Just before he died he forgave the people who had stoned him to death. He had the same forgiving spirit that Jesus had when Jesus was crucified.
Our founder Mr. Carver was inspired by the self-sacrificing story of St. Stephen and decided to name his newly founded school after this great saint.
