St. Mark of Ephesus is blessed with a small, but actively participating congregation. We are a warm, family-oriented body of faithful believers and our members are of all age groups and we embrace many cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The parish conducts a regular and traditional cycle of Orthodox liturgical worship throughout the course of the year. Great Vespers takes place on the first Saturday of every month. Church School classes meet every Sunday after Divine Liturgy. The Parish Council meets the first Tuesday evening of every month, under the guidance of the parish rector to maintain and promote the wholesomeness, stability and well-being of the parish. 


Each Sunday, Divine Liturgy is followed by a time of pleasant fellowship and hospitality, as an expression of Eucharistic unity. The St. Mark parish participates regularly in several community charitable ministries such as on-going charities to aid local shelters, grocery collections for our on-going food pantry, and visiting the ill and shut-ins in our community. All these inititatives are supported by the free-will offerings and volunteer assistance of the parishioners.
