Prayer and Mediation Hour with Music and Silence in the Church Nave
Next Week, St. Mark’s will offer an opportunity for Prayer and Mediation in the Nave of our building on Wednesday Evening, July 22, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. This will be our first small step toward resuming some in-person worship. There will be instrumental music for part of the time, and silence for other part of the hour. At the end of the hour, the Lord’s Prayer will be said together as the tower bell is rung.

This is a quiet and simple offering, a place to pray and meditate and an opportunity to once again be inside our prayer-soaked worship space at St. Mark’s. During this COVID-19 period all in-person worship and prayer opportunities will be managed with a reservation system so that we know who is coming and have assigned seating prior to arrival when possible. All who are participating will be asked to wear a face covering, to observe social distancing guidelines, and to make sure that they are signed-in and that we have proper information. We ask that socializing on church grounds be done in the safest way possible with masks and proper distancing so that we can endeavor to keep our congregation safe and healthy.

To register for Wednesday Prayer and Meditation on July 22 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m., please sign-up on our Reservation System .

We look forward to seeing you for prayer and meditation,
Fr. Christopher+
