We pray, we study, we serve – all part of the regular routine of life. Each of us may do those things individually and as a community. To support growth of a life of faith, Saint Mark’s offers a variety of opportunities for “study” with classes on Sunday mornings as well as throughout the week.
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.

Wednesday October 21 is an additional opportunity to learn about the importance of supporting our faith community with both spiritual and financial gifts, an important aspect of belonging to Saint Mark’s. Again, this will be offered via Zoom along with the Wednesday night fall series of classes.
