Father Lillie facilitated another pilgrimage to the Holy Land during June 2016 for 25 parishioners from St. Mark's. The pilgrimage was for two weeks, and it included time in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Galilee, and other Biblical sites. St. Mark's hosted a pilgrimage a few years ago with Father Lillie during the Christmas season. Photos from the pilgrimage may be viewed via the St. Mark's page on Instagram.
On Sunday, July 17, 2016 after high mass the parish gathered for a Rector's Forum and Middle Eastern Lunch, and the pilgrims shared their experiences with the congregation.
