Live links to our worship services and bulletins
On Sundays, St. Mark's offers an opportunity for parishioners and friends to connect with each other "in real time" using Zoom.
Zoom is a free video-conferencing platform which we'll use so that we have a chance to see each other and even converse. We will share in the Liturgy of the Word together, including a homily/reflection.
All you need to do is follow an internet link (if you want to see each other and your computer has a camera and microphone) or make a phone call, if you want to listen in.

Online Daily Prayer and Thursday Compline
with Rev. Sarah Kye Price
Virtual Chapel of St. Phoebe - links for daily prayer are at the bottom of the homepage, 8:00am weekdays, Compline, Evening Prayer, or Night Prayer at 7:00pm Sundays. The easiest way to get this worship resource is to sign up for the email list (at the bottom of the St. Phoebe page). By doing this you'll get a link to the daily worship in your inbox.
What is Compline, you ask: The last of the four services in the Daily Office (BCP, p. 127). It is descended from the night prayers said before bed at the end of the monastic round of daily prayer. Compline is a simple office including a confession of sins, one or more psalms, a short reading from scripture, versicles and responses, the Lord's Prayer, collects which ask for God's protection during the night to come, and the canticle Nunc dimittis. A hymn for the evening may follow the short reading from scripture. The collects may be followed by a time of silence, along with free intercessions and thanksgivings.

A Prayer for this Time of Uncertainty:
Holy, Gracious, Loving God; Our times are in your hands, and these times have brought us to a strange moment. We read the news. We hear the stories. We know of people who have either tested positive for the Coronavirus or have been in a room with people who have tested positive. And we wonder. We know that there is fear out there, and we ask you to help us to turn this fear, our fear, into an opportunity for your love. We pray for all who have been affected by this illness, for those who are afraid, for all healthcare workers, for our hospital system, for all leaders who are making decisions that affect their people. Guide us all, because we haven't done this before and we are figuring out how to do it as we are doing it. Lead us, bless us, fill us with your peace and with your presence, so that our faith may always exceed our fear, and that we may be a part of the healing work that you are doing. And we pray it all in Jesus' name. Amen.
