Stephen's name means "crown," and he was the first disciple of Jesus to receive the martyr's crown. Stephen was a deacon in the early Christian Church. The apostles had found that they needed helpers to look after the care of the widows and the poor. So they ordained seven deacons, and Stephen is the most famous of these.

    This was a good article but not at all detailed. I'm only in year 9 and I am doing an assignment on Saint Stephen that goes into a lot of detail. Sorry but this was just too simple.

    Many of God's blessing on the person who has compiled this information on St. Stephen. It is his feast day today and I was looking to see if any new information on St. Stephen had been revealed through archeology or ancient text.

    I'd really rather they included what they were patrons of. That's necessary information in my opinion.

    I'm afraid that Tom Smith (from above) doesn't have the whole story. The "angry mob" is mentioned in the narrative above, as well as in Acts chapter 7. Read the Bible, dear friends, and you will see that St. Paul, not Peter, was at the stoning. Not "encouraging", but certainly supporting the action. This was before his conversion and before his name change. He is called "Saul" at this point. St. Stephen, pray for us, especially those still in the angry mob.

    St. Stephen, my patron, thank you for helping me in the past. Dear martyr, continue to intercede for us.
