While Director of Project Defending Life, Father Stephen celebrated 2 Masses per week at the Holy Innocents Chapel next to Planned Parenthood, leading Eucharistic Processions to PP while leading Prayers of Exorcism.

Father Stephen is now one of the leading advocates of national protests to end pre-born child killing in our country. “Let’s us re-energize the protest movement within the pro-life movement until the pro-life movement becomes a protest movement in the character of Martin Luther King’s peaceful civil rights protests. Everything I do for the babies and moms, I do in protest of pre-born child killing!”
