Journey Through Lent

The season of Lent begins on Wednesday, February 14th. St. Mark’s will host an Ash Wednesday service beginning at 7:00 pm. Each Sunday leading up to Easter celebrations on March 31st will focus on sharing the Gospel according to Mark. Please join St. Mark’s as we learn about Mark’s perspective on these last days of Jesus’ life on earth and how this story applies to your life today.
