Eucharistic Ministers (EM): If you find yourself homebound and would like to receive Holy Communion, one of St. Mark's EM's will be happy to drop by your home or care facility and minister the Thanksgiving Meal of the Church. If you are interested in receiving training to become an EM see the Vicar.

Worshiping Christ is the corner stone for Christian faith. Our service is from the Book of Common Prayer, readings from the Bible and is in two segments, the Proclamation of the Word and the Celebration of Holy Communion. We offer one Sunday service at 10:15. You are invited to join us in worshiping, praising our Lord and sharing in Christian fellowship. Let's come together making a joyful noise.

The Ministry of Acolytes: Their duty is to attend to the service of the altar and to assist the clergy as needed in the celebration of the Mass. They carry torches, crosses, thuribles, alms basins and cruets. They're a vital part of worship, they blend into the background helping our liturgies flow smoothly. Whether a young person, or adult, it is a privilege to serve at God's altar. If you feel called to acolyte, contact the Vicar.
