Welcome to the New Author's Site


Stephen Maloney is a new author. He is pastor and married priest living on Long Island an in upstate New York and has been blessed and gifted to be a servant leader in various areas of Christian ministry, such as: intercessory prayer, small home groups, public evangelism, pro-life outreach,spiritual retreats, teaching discipleship courses, marriage preparation, pastoral care and spiritual direction.

As a returned prodigal, Stephen’s participation in various roles as a minister of the Gospel reflects his passion for the hurting least, lost, and lonely. Besides his love of His wife and family, He is most moved by seeing people encounter the grace, love, and power of God, and desires to see the Kingdom of God advance for that very purpose. His faith journey unites a childhood upbringing as a Roman Catholic, the young adult influence of Evangelical preachers, and the further impactful encouragement of Pentecostal – Charismatic friends, and loves them all.  

Stephen is married to Maria Maloney, who he met at a Christian Singles’ Christmas party in 1994, and they are grateful for five blessed children. He graduated St. Michael’s ICCEC seminary with a Licentiate of Theology. He was ordained a deacon in 2000 and a priest in 2003. He has been serving the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church, now for over 25 years.

Stephen’s first book, “Biblical Rhymes & Reasons” is a collection of many personal reflections covering different times and challenging experiences in Stephen’s adult faith journey, as an individual man, husband, father, son, and minister of the Gospel.

This gift of a book can be appreciated on its own because of its richness or can serve as a prayer devotional supplement to bible reading, for quick inspiration or deep reflection, and even a few youthful raps.  More than a work of Christian poetry and proverbs, “Biblical Rhymes & Reasons” takes you on a soul-searching journey of a disciple who is seeking after God to follow in His will.
