Welcome!

Welcome to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church!

Worship at St. Mark’s

Full participation in our worship services at St. Mark’s is open and you are completely welcome to attend – including receiving communion at our service.  We invite you to join us!   Our worship is a sacred time for spiritual renewal as we hear the Word of God in Scripture and the sermon, and as we share the Eucharist together.

Life at our church:

St. Mark’s has an active children’s program. Music and adult education, outreach and service, care for one another and healing prayers, all are part of our life together as a parish.  Join us!

Boxes for the United Thank Offering are available to take home. The spring ingathering will be on Sunday, June 3.

Since Sunday, May 20, is the Day of Pentecost,we encourage everyone to wear something red this Sunday.  Please join our parish children in the processional and recessional during the 10:15 service.

To highlight the Resurrection celebration and contrast vigorously with Lent, penitential elements of the liturgy are omitted in the Easter Season. That is why we don’t have confession for the 50 days.

Music is an important part of life at St. Mark's, both as part of our worship and also as a gift to the wider Waterville community.

* In worship, singing hymns and prayers

* Enjoying our choir

Our Lively Program for Children

At St. Mark's, we welcome children as an important part of our life together. Sunday activities for children and their families are focused on learning by doing. For example:

* Participating in worship in the Family Eucharist

* Outreach projects: making chicken pies for the Homeless Shelter or packing diapers for needy families

Learn more about children and family programs

Our Directors of Children and Youth programs are Jonathan Knock and Melinda Corey.

Pastoral Care

How do we as Christians embody our faith? The entire "Body of Christ" is called, as baptized Christians, to love and care for one another and for those in need. Learn more about why Pastoral Care is vital to our mission.

Our fall series on the "Opiate Crisis and the Faith Community" on Thursday evenings allowed us to learn more from many speakers and discuss ways to help.
