Parish Announcements

 

Help St. Mark Finish the Iconostasis! Our iconostasis at St. Mark’s has come together over many years, and one final step remains— the icons for the Royal Doors. It is customary for the doors to contain the Four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) because through their Gospels the news of Christ comes into the world. In addition, the top panels contain the Annunciation, because this event opens for us the doors of salvation. Matushka Ann Margitich, who painted the other icons in our iconostasis, is at the moment completing the icons for the doors.

 

Each icon for the six panels costs $500. Including shipping the total cost to complete the doors is $3,100. No donation is too small! Individuals or families may also choose to cover the cost for an entire panel. Include with your donation “Royal Doors” in the memo line. Note: these icons show Matushka Ann’s work (picture to the left) ours are being made to fit our doors. We thank you so much for any donation you can give! 

 

The Annual Parish Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, September 29th following the Holy Liturgy. 

 

The First Day of Church School will be on Sunday, September 15th.

 

Our Annual Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, October 2 (Columbus Day Weekend). Beginning in July, we will begin accepting donations of furniture to put on Facebook Marketplace in order to sell and generate some advance sales. Please see Nancy or George with any questions. 

 

Concerning Donations: Donations of liturgical items - currently St. Mark's is in need of more chalice wine. If you would like to make this donation, please speak with Fr. Kevin, and he can provide details about what wine to order. At times we need donations of liturgical items, such as wine, candles, incense, flowers, and the like. This is a great way to contribute to the church if you are able. Thank you.
