This Sunday at Saint Mark's: The Third Sunday after the Epiphany

Join us this Sunday, January 22 for our worship of God:

8 a.m. – Low Mass

A spoken service in traditional language in the Lady Chapel, with sermon by Mother Nora Johnson

9 a.m. – Family Mass

A contemporary-language service at the Crossing, with the Choir of Boys & Girls, congregational hymns, and sermon by Deacon Kyle Babin

10 a.m. - Christian Education for All Ages

Adult Forum: Alternative Christianities, Part 2. Parishioner and historian Barry Levis will lead this three-part series. The assertion that Christians have consistently held the same beliefs since the beginning could not be further from historical reality. While many Christians did share common beliefs, others who regarded themselves as true to the original teaching of Jesus held often radically different views. In these sessions we will meet groups spanning periods from the early church through the Reformation and examine their relationship with the mainstream Christians of their day.

Children ages 3 and up are welcome to join us in the Library for Schola. Each week students sing together, play musical games, learn a bit of music theory, listen to Bible stories, and spend time in prayer. 

Pre-Schola is formation for our youngest disciples, aged 0-36 months. Join us at 10:15 a.m. in the Choir Room (upstairs, next to the Library) for 15 minutes of musical play and storytelling. Pre-Schola parents and children are then welcome to join Schola for a time of prayer at 10:30 a.m. 

11 a.m. – Choral High Mass

A contemporary-language service at the High Altar, with chant and incense, music by the Parish Choir, congregational hymns, and sermon by Mother Erika Takacs

Coffee and refreshments in the Parish Hall follow the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Masses.
