Children & Families


In June, the Rector and Members of a Task Force led by Susan West, met with a group of parents and children over lunch. We discussed the needs, goals, and scheduling realities of Families who currently attend St. Mark’s. After much discussion, we decided to try to put on an event focused on children once a month through the Christmas holidays.

Father Doubleday will offer a Children’s Sermon & after the 10 am Eucharist in the Parish Hall;
