St. Mark's Episcopal Church

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

Welcome to St. Mark’s

 

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. Please feel free to contact us with questions!

The Episcopal Diocese of Maine actively affirms the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in all sacraments and levels of leadership. We strive to create a safe, open, and affirming environment for everyone. In doing so, we honor the teachings of Jesus. To learn more about the Episcopal Church and the LGBTQ+ community, visit https://www.episcopalchurch.org/who-we-are/lgbtq/.

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.
