Lent at St. Mark's

The Episcopal Church invites us to keep the season of Lent holy “by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” (Book of Common Prayer p 265).  Below are some activities St. Mark's offers throughout the season:

Wednesday Lenten Series - "On the 7 Deadly Sins"

VIRTUAL SERIES BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24

Sins are often difficult to resist because in moderation they can be enjoyed with pleasure. When behavior is transformed by obsession it becomes deadly. Led by the Rev. Canon Dr. Douglas Dupree, this series will explore what theologians, artists, poets, satirists and the Bible have to say on the subject. 

This series is based on the book "On the Seven Deadly Sins" by Kenneth Baker and is available at The Red Lion Gift Shop.
