St. Mark's Episcopal Church

A warm and welcoming Episcopal church for all seeking community on their spiritual journey.

Welcome to St. Mark’s

Rev. John Balicki

St. Mark’s is a warm and welcoming community to those looking for a church home, those visiting our area, and others seeking a supportive place as they travel on their spiritual journey.

We are a parish of over two hundred: children, families and singles, elderly and youth.  We live in many of the Maine towns in the Waterville area, and enjoy a rich life together of worship, fellowship, and service.

We welcome you, especially during this Easter season. Please feel free to contact us with questions!

Our rector is the Rev. John Balicki. Read his  message of welcome here.

  • Involving our children
  • Offering concerts

Beyond Our Doors

St. Mark’s mission ranges from issues facing our planet to challenges in our community. We strive to look beyond ourselves to find ways to help.

The Peace Pole

Ways to help

  • The Peace Pole – say a prayer for world peace
  • Food Bank – share with our neighbors
  • Homeless Shelter – support those in need
  • Sandwich Program – provide food for others

Current outreach efforts by our parish

Children, Youth and Families

At St. Mark’s, we welcome children and youth as an important part of our life together, with activities that are focused on learning by doing.

Our lively program includes:

  • Participating in worship through the music, stories, and hands-on activities of Family Eucharist
  • Outreach and service projects, like caring for creation by gathering litter in our church neighborhood, or collecting and packing diapers for our local Essentials Closet.
  • Learn more.

Pastoral Care

How do we as Christians embody our faith? As baptized Christians, we are called to love and care for one another and for those in need.

For example, a recent series on the “Opiate Crisis and the Faith Community” allowed us to learn more from many speakers and discuss ways to help.

Learn more about why Pastoral Care is vital to our mission.
