Herb Garden

We are growing some herbs in the garden box just outside the office door. There is basil, parsley, rosemary, chives, thyme and lavender in the box. On each side of the box is a container with small plastic bags and some scissors. Through the summer you are invited to cut some herbs to take home with you for your summer cooking.

UA Pride

The Upper Arlington Pride Festival is Sunday June 11 from 1 to 5 p.m. on the Mallway, south of Lane in Upper Arlington.

Saint Mark’s is a sponsor of UA Pride and will have a table at the event.

Staffing Saint Mark’s table is fun. We hand out stickers and fans and post-it notes and temporary tattoos and smile and tell people that God loves them.

If you would like to take a turn staffing Saint Mark’s table, come to the festival, find the table and offer to take a turn. Pastor Vicki, Cheryl Boop, Ted Meyers and Andi Waller will be there. We won’t leave you by yourself.

Even if you don’t want to staff the table, drop by and say hello.

If you are coming to UA Pride or planning on attending either the Columbus Pride Mass on June 15 at 6 p.m. at Trinity, Columbus or marching in the Columbus Pride parade on Saturday June 17, you might want a t-shirt that identifies you.

We have created a graphic that you can have printed on a t-shirt at Cafe Press or other similar site. It will look best on a white t-shirt. We don't have time to do bulk orders before the Pride events this year, but there is time for you to get a t-shirt if you want one.

You can get the graphic for the T-shirts here.


The nursery is staffed from 10:15 a.m. - Noon on Sunday mornings for children age 3 and under. Parents are invited to either drop off their children or to stay with them if they prefer.

If you have questions about the nursery, please contact either Julie Moll or Pastor Vicki -
