Adult Baptism, Confirmation, and Reception

Beginning January 18 and continuing through March 22, we will be offering classes on Sundays after coffee hour (1:00-2:30) for all those who would like to explore the possibility of being baptized, confirmed, or received into the Episcopal Church.   We would love to have you join us even if you are uncertain whether to make this deeper commitment to your faith.  This is also a great place to come if you would like to think, learn, pray, and talk about your relationship with God—even if you have been an Episcopalian all your life or never want to be one!  Our conversations are lively, warm, and we hope gently challenging.

There will be an information session on Sunday January 11 at 1pm in the library (second floor, above the parish hall).  Please feel free to drop in if you would like to ask questions and meet other people who are thinking about joining the class.  Mother Johnson, Father Mullen, and Mother Takacs would also be very happy to speak with you individually as you consider this opportunity.

Commitment

November 16 is Commitment Sunday, when we ask everyone who cares about and believes in the work and ministry of Saint Mark’s to make a pledge of financial support for the coming year.  We can only worship God and care for God’s people because many of you help us to do this work with your generous contributions.  Please remember to come to Saint Mark’s at 8, 9 or 11 on Sunday, November 16, and to RSVP for the Celebration Brunch afterwards.  For more info, please contact the Parish Office.  Please take a few minutes to watch this video as you consider what commitment you can make!

The Choir of Boys & Girls

Music is a powerful force in shaping children's lives, and it is one of the ways both children and adults come to know God.  The Boys & Girls Choir at Saint Mark's is a unique way to get your child involved in music, and to discover his or her own spirituality.  The video below shows the kids of the Boys & Girls Choir singing during the summer Choir Camp.  If you'd like more information about the choir, please look here, or contact Dr. Darryl Roland through the Parish Office.

A New Tradition: 20s/30s Simple Suppers

The 20s/30s Simple Suppers is a new tradition here at Saint Mark's. Each month, we'll gather in someone's home for a simple home Eucharist, a delicious meal, and lively conversation.  These dinners have involved a lot of our Saint Mark's 20s/30s - they are a great opportunity to get to know each other a little better and to invite some new friends to get to know us. Interested in joining us or hosting a Simple Supper at your home or apartment? Please contact Mother Erika Takacs at 215-735-1416.
