Effective Immediately for the next two weeks.
March 14, 2020
“Beloved of God and Community of St. Mark’s: I write to you concerning our life together as a faith community in the midst of the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. In consultation with Bishop Hunn, our clergy staff, and the wardens, I have come to the decision that the most loving and prudent action to help decrease the community spread of this virus is to move away from in-person worship, meetings, groups and other church activities for a time. St. Mark’s will not be holding public worship or in-person meetings for the next two weeks. Instead we will be worshiping and meeting together online. To be clear, we will not gather publicly for Sunday worship on March 15 and 22. There will be no coffee hour, no children and youth classes and no adult formation as well.” Please read The Rev. Christopher McLaren’s full announcement here.
We will continue to update the parish as new information arises.
Previous Messaging on COVID-19: Fr. Christopher addressed the parish of St. Mark’s on Sunday, March 8 about growing concerns about the coronavirus, or COVID-19. You may read his full remarks here.
We have set up a dedicated web page to help you remember when, where, and how to connect as we “make church together” in a new way for a limited time:
