Check out some of the things we’ve got going on around St. Mark’s this fall. We’ve got activities for children and youth, campus students, and adults.

Campus Ministry Café | Fridays
Each Friday during the school year, St. Mark’s offers Cafe hours from 12 to 2 p.m. Enjoy a quiet space to work and study, or visit with friends, all while enjoying free baked snacks and coffee/tea in our Parish Hall.

Bible Study Resumes
Deacon Michelle Mooney will once again lead a weekly Bible Study on Wednesday afternoons. Bible study will resume on Wednesday, September 11, at 4 p.m. It is typically held in the Library. Newcomers welcome.

Campus BBQ

All college students are invited to a Welcome Back Barbeque on Friday, September 13, from 4-6 p.m. to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. We’ll provide the food — just be sure to bring your appetite, a friend and your favorite summer memory. We will have vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. We hope to see you there!

Episcopal 101

Sundays, October 27, November 3 & 10, at 11 a.m., in the Rector’s Office
Why do Episcopalians cross themselves? Are we Catholics or Protestants? Why do we have funny words for everything? You are warmly invited to learn more about the Episcopal faith in a three-part conversation with the rector and each other. As much as possible, we would like participants to commit to being at all three sessions.

Campus Ministry Dinner Church — first Sundays of the month, at 5:30 p.m., in the Parish Hall
College students and adults in their 20s and 30s are invited to come to experience a new way to worship with Dinner Church! Join us in the Parish Hall on the first Sunday of each month during the school year as we share dinner, prayers, and discussion together. Setup and conversation begin at 5:30 p.m. with worship and dinner at 6 p.m.

Spirituality & Aging Group — third Tuesdays, at 1 p.m., in the Library
The Spirituality & Aging Group is our group that reads and discusses books that help guide individuals taking their voyage through the last decades of life. If you’re interested in joining them, now would be an ideal time. They will be starting a new book, Grateful by Diana Butler Bass. The book is available at Boswell Book Company.

Daily Evening Prayer | Joan of Arc Chapel, Marquette University 
All college students and faculty are invited to attend daily Evening Prayer at Marquette University’s Joan of Arc Chapel. Join us every weekday evening during the school year from 4:30-5 p.m. for Evening Prayer with music. Stick around after prayer every Thursday as Marquette’s Canterbury Fellowship will have a free dinner together locally.

Holy Moly, our Church School Program, Sundays, at 9:30 a.m.
Holy Moly is our engaging, Bible-based church school curriculum, which artfully uses scripture to invite our young people to join in the life and faith of our church community, while simultaneously teaching them what that means in a fun and exciting way. Our Church School classes are divided into two levels: Primary — K4 through 2nd Grade; Intermediate — 3rd through 5th Grade. Church School gathers every week for the first part of Sunday worship, beginning at 9:30 a.m., and ends in time for students to join their families in church for Communion.

RESPOND Youth Group — starts Sunday, October 6
All youth in grades 7 through 12 are invited to join St. Mark’s youth group, RESPOND, as we kick-off the 2019-2020 school year on Sunday, October 6. The youth group will begin meeting twice each month on 1st and 3rd Sundays during the school year. We will meet in the Gathering Room (2nd Floor) from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. as we play games, read and discuss scripture, pray and enjoy fellowship together.

Blessing of the Animals — Sunday, October 6, at 4 p.m., on the north lawn
Bring your pet and come for the Blessing of the Animals. All are welcome to join in the celebration, even if you don’t have a pet.
