AT ST. MARK'S THIS WEEK...
Lay leaders, staff and clergy gathered Monday evening this week in Garton Hall for a Leadership Retreat.  The group discussion led to a set of initiatives that will guide our work as a church community in the upcoming year.  Top on the list was the need for more effective internal and external information design and delivery.   You will hear more very soon from your leaders about this and other important priorities for God's people at St. Mark's.
