Coming Up at Saint Mark's...

Wednesday Bible Study, 6 p.m.

At the Wednesday Bible study during July, Father Cobb is leading a study of the Book of Psalms.  The psalms form a major portion of Anglican liturgy, and more crucially they are often quoted by our Lord in the Gospels since it has been at the heart of Jewish and then Christian prayer.

Sunday, August 7: The Rev. Stuart Kenworthy, guest preacher

We welcome the Rev. Stuart Kenworthy as our guest preacher at the 11 a.m. Mass. Fr. Kenworthy is the retired rector of Christ Church Georgetown, Washington, D.C., and recently served as interim vicar of Washington National Cathedral.

Sunday, September 11: Homecoming Sunday

Mark your calendars! Homecoming Sunday marks the beginning of the program year, with the return of the Adult Forum, Schola, the Parish Choir, and the Choir of Boys & Girls. A parish picnic in the garden follows the 11 a.m. Mass.
