Denice handles all financial matters, human resources, and office management for the parish. She's a Beaumont native whose top priorities are God, her family, and her country.

Overseeing the day-to-day operations of the church office, preparing all material for Sunday services, and updating St. Stephen's social media accounts are just a few of the many hats Peggy (photo center)wears. As the volunteer nursery manager she ensures that the nursery is staffed with properly trained, loving, and responsible attendants. Peggy's done it all, from mopping floors to setting up an off-site office with the help of her cohort, best friend, and fellow office-mate, Denice Thomas. Those two share many responsibilities at St. Stephen’s, so much so that people often confuse them!
