Worship Server Training and Orientation

One of the things about the Episcopal Church is its ancient, rich, and beautiful liturgy.  Whether that expression of our liturgical life is lively and energetic or quiet and contemplative, the church has always believed that it is the work of many hands.  The liturgy is celebrated by everyone, laity and clergy, together.  Our liturgy offers many opportunities for special service.  Lay persons can help by reading the Lessons or the Prayers of the People as a Lector, by serving the Eucharist as a Chalice Bearer, by sharing the Eucharist with our homebound parishioners as a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, or by serving as an Acolyte.  Each of these ministries are necessary in how we express our common worship tradition in the Episcopal Church.  For some of these ministries, having the opportunity to train and prepare is important.


Beginning on Sunday February 24 we will be offering training and/or orientation for new and current servers for our worship services.  This training will occur after Coffee Hour following the 10:00 AM service.  We will be taking one group per week.  If you are interested in becoming a Worship Server, please contact Mthr. Gretchen at 315-331-3610 or by email at reverend@stmarknewark.org.

Sacred Space in the Chaos: A Women's Day of Reflection

Daily life pulls women in a number of directions and often God ends up in last place!  There can be so many distractions making it impossible to find that quiet place.  Sacred Space in the Chaos will offer through activities, discussion, and meditation instruction on how to build and maintain your own sacred space, wherever it is.  Please join us as we explore ways to use what God gives us to help create Sacred Spaces in the Chaos.  Registration forms are in the back of the church.  For more information, please contact Mthr. Gretchen at 315-331-3610 or by email at reverend@stmarknewar.org.
