Christian Stewardship

The practice of Christian stewardship begins with the recognition that everything we have comes from God.  Jesus taught his first disciples to be good stewards of the gifts God had given them: their talents, the earth and their money.  21st century disciples face many challenges and opportunities as we try to be good stewards of all that God has given us. 

Every parish community depends on the financial support of its members - Saint Mark's is no different.  We are only able to carry out our mission because of the support of all those who contribute to it in large ways and small.  We happen also o be the stewards of beautiful and historic buildings as well as several treasures of ecclesiastical artistry.  Our care of our buildings and its appointments likewise depends on the support of our members and those who take an interest in this community and what we stand for.

Each year, normally in the fall, a stewardship campaign is conducted in which the parish leadership asks for pledges of financial support for the coming calendar year.  News about stewardship events and other relevant information will be posted here as the campaign nears.  For more information please contact one of the clergy.
