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.
Sacred Tree, Holy Cross
During Lent and Holy Week we walk the Way of the Cross, tracing our Lord's journey to the hill of Calvary.
Renewing Hearts for Christ
Lent is the season of renewal for the church as we prepare for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Forty days and forty nights in length, this observance mirrors our Lord's time in the wilderness.
Sundays at 5:00 pm
During Lent the sermons at Evensong will be thematic, addressing such topics as confession, Holy Week, and the sacraments.
Pray the Daily Offices
Join us this Lent as we renew our practice of praying the Daily Offices of Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer.
Join the Rector and others for this weekly Bible Study.
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.
