This Week at St. Mark's

Happy Feast of the Epiphany!!

Join us tonight at 6pm on the beach
across from the White Cap (our former location.)
 
We will gather on the beach for a Christmas tree bonfire and a brief Epiphany Evening Prayer service. Then we will enjoy hot chocolate and the first King Cakes of the season!!

Vestry Nominations


If you, or someone you know, is interested to serve on the Vestry of St. Mark's please contact the Church office. The vestry is our 9-person lay elected leadership body who, along with the Rector, make decisions on behalf of our congregation as directed by the Canons of the Diocese of Mississippi. We will be collecting names of interested individuals in advance of our 2021 Parish Meeting. In order to serve on the Vestry a person must be a confirmed member in good standing.

For the time being we will continue to
worship together online.
