Sponsoring our Sunday altar flowers is a great way to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, remember a loved one who has passed, or mark any other special occasion. A $50 donation offsets the cost of the flowers - our very talented Floral Guild provides the artistry at no cost. Select the Sunday you wish to sponsor and fill in your name and the dedication. Forms are on our website and in the hallway just outside the Parish Hall. You may pay on-line with a credit card, or by cash or check in the Office.

On-line giving is also available through the website, to support St. Mark's ministries just click the GIVE button in the upper right corner.

Pledge Statements: Second quarter statements are in the office. Please pick up your statement this Sunday. Beginning next quarter, all pledging parishioners will have the opportunity to receive their donation statements via email, the same email address which receives the Thursday e-bulletin. If you would like to receive a hard copy of your statement instead, please contact the office no later than September 1.
