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.

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 before enjoying good food and lively discussions. 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!). 

Upcoming Simple Supper Dates (2019-2020)

All are welcome to gather from 6:30 p.m. on. Mass begins at 7 p.m. Please email 20s30s with any questions, to RSVP, or to get the addresses for home gatherings.
