This Sunday - All Parish Lunch!


All are invited to lunch this Sunday, following Sunday School. 50 youth from the diocese will be with us for worship on Sunday morning, after which they will be serving a delicious lunch to the parish.

Please stick around for a great meal and an opportunity to visit with youth from many parishes in our diocese.


Clarification about the Shoebox Packing Party


The bulletin was confusing this past Sunday (sorry!). Please read what follows and consider participating in this ministry both "at home" and "at the church."

It's shoebox time! Kindly help support this Samaritan's Purse Christmas mission outreach by filling shoeboxes with useful and fun items for the world's neediest children. There are two ways to participate:

At home: You and your family can prepare shoebox gifts at home, using either plastic shoeboxes or your own wrapped standard-sized shoeboxes (please wrap the box and lid separately). There is a shipping charge of $7 per box. No time to shop? We’d be pleased to accept financial donations to offset the cost of shipping the boxes from the Parish Packing Party. All boxes are due by Sunday, November 11th. Brochures are available in the Narthex, on the table near the parking lot entrance, and in Cranmer Hall.

At St. Mark’s: Please join us on Sunday, November 4th after services (no Sunday School that day) for a Parish Shoebox Packing Party in Cranmer Hall. We have lots of pre-purchased items waiting to be packed. All are welcome – please feel free to bring a friend. We will need box wrappers, packers, and labelers. Pizza, salad and drinks will be provided.

Please see Diane McTigue with any questions or donations (215-942-9173). Thank you!
