Fellowship has been and remains a strength at St. Mark’s. We justly pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming place and on many of the enduring friendships among parishioners. We have dedicated and talented parishioners who volunteer their time to keep the church running and our congregation is deeply committed to expanding our worshipping community.
Like many other Episcopal churches in the Diocese we are growing older as a congregation and we have seen our pledging units decline. In addition, St. Mark’s has experienced various episodes of conflict between members of our parish and former priests and in 2018 we experienced a turnover of priests, which contributed to a sense of instability and hindered our ability to connect with the community. Under Father Brandt’s leadership as Interim Priest, the congregation at St. Marks turned away from the past and began looking to the future with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
