Welcome to Our Community!

Whether you have already visited us or are researching the internet for a church to attend, we welcome you to this exciting and growing community of faith.

Most of us are searching for something beyond ourselves, for meaningful connections, a place where our children receive a sense of the sacred and our teenagers feel comfortable, safe and supported, for the freedom to ask our questions and discover awe, for a sense of belonging. Whatever your reasons, we invite you to explore St. Mark’s, a place where we come as we are, accept each other for who we are, strive to grow and open to change along the way.

Our Mission

St. Mark's Episcopal Church is an extended family of loving people bound by faith in Christ. We seek to deepen our relationship with God, strengthen our faith community, support each other, and serve our neighbors. We do this by celebrating our faith through meaningful liturgy and prayer, sharing our stories and traditions, and participating in ministries of fellowship, compassion and justice.


“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” — 2 Corinthians 5:17 [NRSV]
Fifty-Minute Forum:

How Can St. Mark’s (You) Make a Difference in Haiti?

September 28 at 11:30 am in the Kennedy Room

In July four members of St. Mark’s, Eric Leroy, Carrie Leroy, Jessie Jewitt and our Rector, Matthew McDermott traveled to Haiti to visit Father Noé Bernier and the churches in Hinche (St. Andre's) and Pacasse (St. Peter's). We learned a great deal in simply being there, meeting the people, worshipping and visiting the community with which we hope to serve and partner. There is great need. There is great opportunity. The opportunity is ours to learn and grow and make a difference.
Join us for pictures and stories and be a part of hopeful change!

Oct 5 is St. Clare and St. Francis Animal and Bicycle Blessing Day!

Please bring your pets and bicycles for an outside service of blessing. You may bring a stuffed animal in lieu of your actual animal if it cannot come to church. Bring also hats and sunglasses. There will be festive music and a children's sermons.
