A Collect for Juneteenth

Similar to our custom of closing our offices and offering prayers on July 4th, we do the same next week for the expansion of freedom commemorated by Juneteenth.

Almighty God, you rescued your people from slavery in Egypt, and throughout the ages you have never failed to hear the cries of the captives; We remember before you our sisters and brothers in Galveston, Texas who on this day received the glad tidings of their emancipation; Forgive us for the many grave sins that delayed that liberating word; Anoint us with your Spirit to bring good news to the poor, to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim the year of your favor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Outreach with St. Mark's

Seeking Volunteers to Assist with Oversight of St Mark’s Honduras Mission Activities           

Your opinions would be helpful in considering issues relevant to the support of Manos de Dios activities and our “Breakfast for Schoolchildren” mission in Honduras. Manos activities might include presentations at St Mark’s and planning for their annual mission trips in January. Breakfast program issues typically concern requests for help with facilities improvements at Ojo de Agua. Your help would provide broader St Mark’s input to the 2 or 3 mission travelers that currently the first responders to these questions. We would expect to meet no more frequently than once a quarter for an hour or two. There are no expectations that participants will become mission travelers but there would be no better way for you to be informed of mission trip plans should you choose to participate. Please contact Dean Lalich at (512) 757-5307 or dlalich@grandecom.net if you are willing to help.

 

College Students/Young Adults - Join the Manos de Dios team on our next mission trip to Honduras in 2025. Travel awards are now available for our 2 – 9 January mission trip. For more information contact Dean Lalich at dlalich@grandecom.net or Patricia Perea at ManosHonduras@gmail.com. Applications are now being accepted. Visit our Honduras Mission page for more information!

The Diaper Pantry always needs your help! 

Diapers are an essential item for families and one that is not provided or covered by government assistance programs like SNAP or WIC. For the last 4 years, this ministry has grown into a community staple and support network for 300+ families in our community. 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!
