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 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!). 

Upcoming Simple Supper Dates

All gatherings are at 6:30 p.m. Please email 20s30s with any questions, to RSVP, or to get the addresses for home gatherings.

We will be learning more about food insecurity and hunger in Philadelphia and beyond. We are asking that the dishes you bring follow recipes that Americans on SNAP benefits (previously known as food stamps) can afford—about $1.40/person per meal or about $20 for a 15 person dish. Leanne Brown's cookbook Good and Cheap is a great resource for healthy, delicious, and inexpensive meals. 

If we believe in being responsible citizens, and in our Christian values of abundant outreach and spiritual formation, it is important that we can cultivate a deeper understanding of what many of our neighbors experience. So what better way is there to do that than together over food that we can prepare intentionally?

Sign up here to bring a dish!
