Our St. Mark's family hopes to "see Jesus in and be Jesus to others as we are led and empowered by Grace."
This mission statement guides our work here in San Marcos and beyond as we seek to serve through these Ministries.

Young Adult & Campus Ministry

St. Mark's aims to be a place where young adults can find community, engaging worship, and space for discerning their spiritual path.

We welcome young adults in all aspects of our parish life, including serving as layreaders or singing in the choir on Sunday mornings. During the academic year, St. Mark's hosts YACM events both at the church and in members' homes. It also supports the work of United Campus Ministries/Christ Chapel, located at Texas State across the street from the Tower dorm. Once a month, volunteers prepare and serve a meal at Bobcat Lunch, held at UCM/Christ Chapel (dates TBA) and also contribute to the ministry's food pantry.

School of Wisdom


St. Mark's School of Wisdom is open to the curious and the serious – to all seekers of Christian wisdom and spirituality.

Our assumption is that everyone needs to find their own way, in their own way.  Each course and spiritual practice is part of a transformational journey, a journey we are all on whether we are conscious of it or not.
The purpose of the School is to open our hearts and awaken our minds toward the growth of the soul.  We explore our unique individual paths on common spiritual ground with others to:

- Encounter the Divine
- Question the ways we think and what we believe
- Re-imagine our tradition
- Co-create our world

All are welcome to join us in learning and practicing the spiritual path that Christianity has to offer. 

Environmental Stewardship

St. Mark's is committed to the responsible environmental stewardship of the resources God has given to all of us.  As Christians, it brings us joy and grace when we recognize the sacredness of creation and when we live our lives in a manner that respects and cares for the natural, environmental, cultural and human resources we have been given.

Episcopal Church Women


Episcopal Church Women (ECW) is an organization that includes all women of the Episcopal Church.  The ECW is organized on the National, Provincial, Diocesan, and local level.

At St. Mark’s, ECW women actively gather together throughout the year for fellowship, faith building, and service. The fellowship activities include a Fall gathering, a Christmas party, and a Spring salad supper.

Our Chili Cookoff in October is our major fundraiser. This includes a bake sale, silent auction, live music, and children’s activities. The money we raise is donated to numerous charitable organizations throughout Hays County and surrounding area as an extension of the outreach mission of St. Mark’s.
We look forward to seeing you at ECW gatherings!
