A WELCOME to all visitors and newcomers, we’re glad you’re here, and we hope you’ll keep coming back.  Holy Communion is open to all who wish to receive. This is Christ’s altar, and all are welcome at Christ’s feast. We also hope you’ll introduce yourself to the clergy after the service and will sign our guest book.   Welcome!!

VISITORS AND NEWCOMERS:  Please take a few moments to fill out one of the blue cards in the pews and by the guest book in the Narthex, and place the card in the offertory plate.  It’s very important to us that you be included as a parishioner, if you so desire.

ATTENTION SHOPPERS:  In your weekly shopping please make an extra effort to keep St. Mark’s Food Pantry in mind.  An easy way to do this is to capitalize on any “two-for-one” offers in the market.  Our Lord Christ reminds us that the poor are always with us…so, Please remember to bring an item of non-perishable food with you when you are able.  Thank you.
