Social Justice & Outreach
St. Mark's is committed to working with God to create a better community and a better world. God is at work in our world and St. Mark's parishioners seek opportunities to join God's mission in their daily lives - at school, at home, at work and through a variety of social justice and outreach initiatives. Following are just some of the ways in which St. Mark's is involved in the community in helping to create a better world.
Christmas Basket Update: Donors Still Needed!
All of our families have sponsors! Thank you to those parishioners who have adopted an individual, family or donated gift cards.
