Weekly Prayer List - Parish Prayer Chain
Those requesting to be on the Weekly Prayer List are remembered publicly at each celebration of the Holy Eucharist on Sunday and at Saint Mark’s staff meeting on Tuesday mornings. People are encouraged to provide the Parish Office with as much information as possible, as well as notification of when the request may be retired. This list is reset each Advent. Names on the Parish Prayer Chain are confidentially uplifted in prayer by prayer chain members on a private basis.

Home Communion - Lay Eucharistic Calling
Eucharistic Visitors assist the clergy in bringing the Reserve Sacrament (Communion) to members of the Saint Mark’s community who are home bound for some reason and cannot attend Sunday worship service. They strive to keep God’s presence in the lives of all Saint Mark’s parishioners by making home visits at least once a month.
“Who are the ministers of Saint Mark’s? The whole congregation…”
– Weekly “Order of Service”
Members of the clergy make regular hospital visits when needed. Because of patient-privacy policies it is important to notify the church if you or another member of the congregation is hospitalized and would like a pastoral call or to receive communion.
A conversation with lay pastoral leaders
“The Body of Christ is the whole church,
whether gathered together in one place or scattered throughout the world.”
– – Pastoral Deacon Joan Maynard
