Welcome to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church! We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about our community. Whether you are new to the Christian faith and are full of questions, or have much experience in the Church, we believe that there is a place for you in this community.
On December 5, from 5-8 p.m., the Downer Avenue merchants will again celebrate the coming of Christmas with a night on the street. All the shops will be open and special celebrations and treats will be in abundance.
St. Mark’s will also be hosting a evening of cookies, hot chocolate, and hot cider in our Guild Hall. This is specially welcoming for families to come in from the cold, have a place to sit, and just enjoy warming up. There will also be crafts for the kids and shopping with several local vendors for the adults.
Every year there has been a surprise visit from St. Nicholas, who comes with special treats for all the good little boys and girls. We have every reason to believe that he will be there again this coming December 5. And won’t that be fun?
Not to be missed as well is the annual cutest dog contest that is held every year in front of the Hollander restaurant. There are great prizes for the winners and their handlers. The costumes that each dog sports alone are worth coming out in the cold.
Don’t miss this lovely evening on Downer Avenue, as our neighborhood celebrates together the coming of Christmas. If you would like to volunteer on the night of Festive Friday at St. Mark’s or bake and bring cookies, please see the sign up sheet in the Guild Hall or contact Michelle Mooney.
