150th Anniversary Celebration - May 5, 2024

Single Service at 10am

It's time to celebrate our 150th Anniversary. We'll have a worship service from all four Prayer Books since 1789. We'll be joined by old friends like the Rt Rev Jim Folts. We'll take a parish picture and have a parish birthday party for our kids. We'll have photo booths, timelines, exhibits, slideshows, and a delightful reception. So come early, bring a friend, and don't forget to wear RED.

St Mark's Trail Crew

The San Marcos Greenbelt Association has graciously researched, surveyed and proposed a trail at St Mark's. Now all we need is a trail crew to help make it a reality. If you are interested in helping blaze this trail with some good old fashion brush clearing and rock moving, please contact Fr Christian at christian@stmarkssanmarcos.org

Notes from your Music Director

Please come join Choir at practice as they prepare for the 150th Anniversary performance. All are welcome to participate! A very special thank you to our choirs for the countless hours of hard work given to prepare for Holy Week and Easter Morning. They walked with us every step of the way and added so much richness to our experience. The sounds of Easter came alive with the help of brass on Easter Morning, and an exuberant organ dismissal by Julius. Thank you all. 

The music continues this Wednesday with rehearsal at 5:45pm for Bells and 6:45pm Chancel Choir. Now is the perfect time to try something new!

AND - we’re having a choir reunion May 5th for the 150th anniversary celebration. If you’ve ever sung in the choir at St Mark’s and would like to join us in worship please let me know. If you’re local and want to grab a seat in the choir loft - show up to a rehearsal of two. We’d love to see you there.

Please help us continue this vital ministry by donating to our fund using the link below, or bringing in a box of diapers to add to the pantry. Thanks so much for supporting the littlest members of the St. Mark's Community!
