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.
April 14 - 21
Join us for the most Holy Week of the Christian year. The week begins with Palm Sunday on April 14, ending with the festival of Easter on April 21.
First Sundays at 9:30 am
We pray the Holy Rosary before High Mass on the first Sunday of the month. Even if you have never prayed the rosary, you are welcome to join us.
Join the Rector and others for this weekly Bible Study.
Daily at 12:00 noon
The mass is celebrated daily at St. Mark's. These weekday masses are said, they last approximately a half hour, and they can be very beautiful due to their simplicity.
Pray the Daily Office
The Guild of St. Benedict at St. Mark's is composed of clergy and laity who are devoted to praying the Daily Office.
O Gracious Light
Everyday Evening Prayer is read at St. Mark's. This service of Bible readings, psalms, canticles, and prayers is one of the hallmarks of Anglican spirituality.
Recent Formation Offerings
During Advent of 2018 we gathered for a three-week Bible Study focusing on the Advent themes of the Annunciation, the Visitation, the birth of John the Baptist, and the Word-Made-Flesh.
During the autumn of 2018 the second reading at the Sunday masses was from the Epistle to the Hebrews. We gathered for a two-month study for the theologically rich letter.
We honored a season of creation and explored Franciscan spirituality through Bible Study, the readings of St. Francis, and prayer.
During the month of August at the Sunday masses the Gospel was from St. John's discourse on the Bread of Life. We gathered for a three-week Bible Study on this text.
When we speak of Easter Mystagogy, we speak of interpreting the great mysteries of the faith. It is a great tradition of the church to do this exercise during the season of Easter.
