Ministries

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.

Family Ministry


st. Mark's Family Ministries & Covid 19

During this unprecedented time of a global pandemic, St. Mark's is committed to loving our neighbors as ourselves by keeping each other safe.  We are currently not gathering for in-person worship or for Sunday Morning formation times.  We have an offering of online resources for families and children in the links below.  We encourage and invite you to take a look as a family - as you have time and are able.  You are always welcome to reach out with questions on our St. Mark's Facebook page or you can call into the church office and leave a message.

College Ministry

St. Mark's supports the students at Texas State University and all students in higher education in the greater San Marcos area.

During the school year, college students are invited to meet weekly at St. Mark's or in parishioners homes for a good meal, Christ-centered discussion, and a time of worship.

While you are away from home, consider St. Mark's your home. If you are a parent or a student looking for more information about our ministry with the students of Texas State University, please email the Rev. Mike Woods or you can subscribe to our eNews to receive up to date information about what’s going on at St. Mark’s!

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. 

Monday Evening:  Contemplative Prayer at 5:30pm & Courses from 6:00 to 8:00pm
Wisdom on Wednesdays   1:30 to 3:00pm

ALL SCHOOL OF WISDOM COURSES WILL BE HELD ONLINE.
THERE WILL BE NO MEETINGS ON CAMPUS.  YOU WILL BE SENT SIGN-IN INSTRUCTIONS AFTER YOU REGISTER.

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!
