Serving the Parish

We offer many opportunities to gather with others to serve the needs of the parish.

The Vestry is the lay governing body of the parish that assists and supports the Rector in conducting parish business.  Its members and officers are elected at the Annual Parish Meeting and meet monthly.  All parishioners are invited to serve on
Vestry committees.

The Evangelism and Newcomers’ Committee- Invites, greets, orients and incorporates others into St. Mark’s. Coordinates special events and distributes materials and gifts for new members.

The Pastoral Care Committee- Works with clergy regarding parishioners in   need, levels of care, visiting and Lay
Eucharistic Visitor’s ministry. Maintains prayer chain, supports card and casserole ministries.

The Hospitality Committee- Organizes social events and coordinates coffee hour.

The Outreach Committee - Develops, recruits, and coordinates projects in which parishioners can be involved in the community, e.g. Angel Tree, Bishops Race for Children.
