This is an Anglicanism 101 class. What is unique about being an Episcopalian? What do we have in common with other denominations? What history led us to this point? What unique gifts might the Episcopal church have to offer the greater Christian family? This course counts as Confirmation preparation for adults. Co-taught by the Rev. Dr. Nathan Jennings and Fr. Zac.
New to St. Mark’s? Relatively new to St. Mark’s? Been here a while, but getting reacquainted? Join Fr. Zac on Wednesday nights in February for dinner, conversation, and some introductory teaching about things from the Episcopal Church in general, to how you might get involved at St. Mark’s in particular. 6:30-7:30 p.m. Email Fr. Zac if you plan to attend: email@example.com.

Take a night off from cooking and join us in the Parish Hall for pancakes, sausage & fresh fruit! Prices: $4 for adults; $2 for children ages 6-12; $1 for children under the age of 6, and a maximum of $12/family. Shrove Tuesday is a day of indulging in the rich, fatty foods that were traditionally abstained from during Lent. Making pancakes was a way to use up butter, milk, sugar and eggs before the 40-day fast.
