Give us an inquiring and discerning heart
At baptism we pray that the newly baptized will have an inquiring and discerning heart. St. Mark's offers a variety of formation programs throughout the year for adults, in addition to our regular rota of worship and outreach offerings, for the formation of our hearts and minds.
