The Call of St. Mark
The central act of faith and worship in the Episcopal Church is Holy Communion
This is the table, not of the church, but of the Lord, It is made ready for those who love God and for those who want to love God more. So come, you who have much faith and you who have little; You who have been here often and you who have not been here long; You who have tried to follow and you who have failed. Come, because it is the Lord who invites you.
It is God’s will that those who want God should meet here.
What does this mean? We believe it means you belong. We are all children of God, created in the divine image. Coming to church helps us deepen that relationship. Coming to the Episcopal Church means we follow a “via media” – a middle way that traces back to the time of the Reformation and Queen Elizabeth I – that allows for and asks for diversity and change in the church.
Belonging at St. Mark’s is a matter of being present and being available to God, participating in the common life of the church, and working to follow the call of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
