20s/30s Group at Saint Mark's

College and graduate students and young professionals are an integral part of the parish community at Saint Mark's. Folks in their 20s and 30s gather often for community, mutual support, learning, and service both at the parish and for occasional joint events with our neighboring parishes.

Our next event will be on Thursday, December 20 at 6:30 p.m. We will be baking cookies to serve as part of the annual Saturday Soup Bowl Christmas Breakfast. We will be baking in the Parish Hall starting at 6:30 p.m. We’ve been asked to bake 400 cookies for our guests, and we will need plenty of volunteers to bake and bring ingredients. Please sign up here to bring one to two ingredients (or more). We will also need Ziplock bags, baking sheets, aluminum foil, and wire cooling racks. All 20s/30s are welcome!

Simple Suppers

The 20s/30s group at Saint Mark’s meets monthly for our popular Simple Supper series. These get-togethers take place in the homes of our members or at the parish and are a really wonderful way to get to know one another better. The menu is as simple or as complicated as the host would like – the conversation is always engaging, the atmosphere relaxed, and there is plenty of laughter. We also always take the time to have Mass together with hearty, home-baked bread and a glass of simple red wine. If you’re new to Saint Mark’s and interested in getting to know this 20s/30s group better, or if you’ve been a member for a while now and want to grow your relationships here, these Simple Suppers are for you (and friends, roommates, neighbors, and work colleagues are always welcome!).
