Episcopal 101

Saint Mark’s offers a variety of opportunities for formation to support your personal spiritual development, and Episcopal 101 is one of the first steps.  This 3-part series of classes is on the pathway to membership for people who are new to St. Mark’s, new to the Episcopal Church or are simply interested in deepening their knowledge and their faith.  Each of the weeks is taught by a different member of the ministry team, with other members involved in the classes as well, giving new members a chance to meet a variety of people.

This class will utilize the book “A People Called Episcopalians”, which is available in our Cathedral Book Shop.

Mondays, October 5, 12, and 19, via zoom.
