The group Stope was founded in 2003 in the parish of All Saints in Blato. The name stands for their connection with blessed Mary of Jesus Crucified Petković from their hometown since the group members want to follow in her footsteps (stope) of love and kindness through music and occasional charity work. Currently there are 14 girls singing and their director is sister Danijela Škoro from the Daughters of Mercy religious order.

Most girls from the group are high school students; however there are a couple of elementary school and college students.

Stope sing at Sunday Holy Mass and on every ninth day in the month at the sanctuary of blessed Mary of Jesus Crucified Petković , at weddings and other special occasions. They also prepare programs for youth in which they participate with their music and acting talents. The girls often work as volonteers in two nursing homes in Blato.

Stope had a few solo concerts in Blato, and they also performed in Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Zagersdorf and Antau (Austria), Sarajevo (a festival of Christmas songs called Kao nekad pred Božić 2009) and many other places. The girls have also performed at some of the festivals of Christian music: Uskrs fest (2007, they won the award by the listeners of the Croatian Catholic radio), Bonofest (2008), Hodočašće u došašće (2008), Papafest (2009), Uskrs fest (2010), Hosanafest (2010, the first prize by the audience) and Bonofest (2011).

In summer 2010 Stope promoted their first album "Moja ljubav si Ti/You are my love in Croatia" and in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The album consists of 11 songs some of which are result of their collaboration with the well known music producer Rajko Dujmić. They also gave several performances together.

They have received many awards for their work including the Srebrni grb award by the municipality of Blato.
