Rector
Rev. Ralph "Max" Bailey
Phone: 303-776-1072 ext 2
Father Max (just Max if you like), is an "almost native" of Colorado. Born in California he moved to Denver in 1964 after five years in Dallas, Texas. He is married to Anne and between them have six children ranging in ages from 18 to 40 as well as four grandchildren. Ordained in 1984, Max has been at St. Stephen's for 26 years, but don't let that throw you, he thrives on finding new and creative ways to help people experience the love and presence of God in their lives. In his spare time, he likes to exercise, read, spend time with his spouse and ride bikes. 


Assistant Priest
Rev. Dana Solomon
Phone: 303-776-1072 ext 6

Dana was an educator for nearly 20 years before discerning a call to ministry.  She was ordained to the Diaconate in 2006, and to the priesthood in 2009 after earning a Master of Divinity from Iliff School of Theology.  She is a Board Certified Chaplain working in that capacity at Longmont United Hospital. Dana, and her partner Winnie, love the outdoors. Golfing, gardening, camping, kayaking, biking or just walking with Cleo-patra (their dog) in the beauty of creation feed their souls.  

“I feel honored and privileged to serve my brothers and sisters at St. Stephen’s.  This is just a wonderful, loving, inclusive community.  If you are in our neighborhood, come and see for yourself.”
