We believe God's love and welcome extends to everyone. No exceptions! At St. Mark's, we are committed to diversity and inclusion. Each Sunday, our priest says these words to invite everyone to communion at our altar:
This is the Lord's table. If you have great faith, or you have little faith, you are welcome. If you have been here often, or if you have never been here before, you are welcome.

Our Sunday worship services are at 8am and 10am We offer a nursery school for children up to 3 years old and Sunday School for children up to 6th grade.
