Holy Week 2021 at St. Mark’s

This year’s Holy Week and Easter season promises to be especially poignant. The lengthening of days and the warming weather have always been reminders of the movement toward Easter, but this year the increasing rates of vaccination and the improving timeline for emerging from the pandemic give this season an added resonance. It has been such a difficult and trying year, but still Resurrection comes. We invite you to make St. Mark’s part of your journey towards the empty tomb in 2021.

St. Mark’s continues to invite worshippers to physically gather while being mindful of an ongoing pandemic. We continue to follow the guidelines for worship as set forth by our Bishop Andy Doyle. These include the wearing of face masks, social distancing, and not exceeding our capacity to safely accommodate worshippers (currently approximately 100 people). In an abundance of caution, the building is disinfected after each use. Thank you for understanding and cooperating with these efforts.
