‘Love God; And Love Each Other.’ – Jesus
Thank you for joining us online and connecting with us.
God’s dream for the world is that we live in just peace and tender harmony, fostering a global community in which each members’ rights and responsibilities are affirmed and fulfilled. This community is marked by ‘love,’ in thought, word, and deed. For Christians, there’s nothing esoteric about this ‘love’ – it is visible, tangible, measureable – which means, for the Church, it’s also something we can, and do, practice together.

Fall Adult Formation on Wednesdays
Fall formation will begin Wednesday, 9.16, with fellowship at 6 pm and program at 6:30. Our first presenter will be Dean Paul Lebens- Englund with a look at the year ahead.


Wednesday 9.23 will be the first of four week series that will focus on The Episcopal Church as a Jesus movement. We don't exist just for the benefit of our members but for everyone. We work for the rule of God that Jesus preached: a time of justice, peace, generosity, and wholeness. As God's people we are called to make that rule alive. But what does that mean for us as individuals and as a community? Come join us via Zoom to hear from a variety of presenters and to engage in meaningful conversations. Find out more about our fall series by visiting our web site here.

Youth Group and Godly Play have started this Sunday, September 13th. Contact Monica Kruger for Godly Play info and Stacey Clatenoff for Youth group info

Daily Practice
Daily practices for prayer, meditation, silence are one part of a balanced Rule of Life. The phrase Rule of Life comes from Saint Benedict, referring to the set of 73 directions for a monastic life written in the sixth century. This Rule of Saint Benedict is a series of insights into the art of living, with a rhythmic daily pattern of work, study, community and prayer.

Fall Fellowship aka Coffee Hour

Second Sundays, following worship
10.11, 11.8

We look forward to seeing you on Zoom on the second Sunday of the month. Fellow members and various Council leaders will be present as we greet one another, share celebrations, hear news of the Cathedral, and just have fun together, virtually!
Our time together will begin at 11:45 am or shortly after worship and last for about 30 minutes.
All Saint Mark's members are invited to pray for our students as they return to their studies:

God of all wisdom, we praise you for gifting us with curiosity and learning. Give to all students a clear sense of your love, that they may feel your presence supporting them throughout this school year. Guide their choices, direct their quest for knowledge, bless their relationships, and use their successes and failures as opportunities to grow in understanding of who you would have them to be. Continue, we pray, to shape them, that they may ever walk in the way of Jesus, grow strong in your Spirit's love for all people, and know the complete joy of life in you.

(Prayer adapted from Linda Witte Henke, "From the Vine," in Marking Time: Christian Rituals for All Our Days, Moorehouse Publishing 2001, p. 63.)
