Many thanks to everyone who came out for our Advent Retreat. Dr. Petty did an excellent job of helping us to think through questions related to the purpose of worship. In addition to members of St. Marks, we had visitors from three other churches. Many thanks to everyone who helped to make our retreat such a fine day.

As in years past, if you plan to give Christmas cards to other parishioners at St. Marks - we encourage you to make use of our parish "Mailbox" (located in Cranmer Hall).

Place your cards for other parishioners in the box and then please consider writing out a check for the amount of money that you saved on postage, which we will give to a local charity.
