Sadly, the news of Fr Steven’s death has just reached us. What is interesting is that on Easter Monday 13 April I sent out an email encouraging people to watch his video recorded at our convention in 1998. Three days later, April 16, the good Lord took Father Steven to Himself once more (watch the video his talk to know more).
May God have mercy on his soul.
See following the funeral notice etc.
