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. 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. 

 

 

Liturgical Summer Schedule

The following is the schedule for summertime. In addition, before entering the sanctuary you must sign your name and phone number into the guest book in the narthex. Masks are no longer required in church if you have been fully vaccinated; maintaining 6-feet distance between people is still required; all are welcome to be mask-free outside for coffee hour. If you are sick, please stay home until you are well. Thank you to all who have continued to support St. Mark during this difficult time and for your ongoing patience.
