Blessing of the Animals, Sunday, Oct. 2: Bring your pets to church for our annual St. Francis Day Blessing of the Animals! Weather permitting, we'll worship in theMemorial Garden with our furry friends. (If the weather is cold or damp, we'll invite the pets to join us in the sanctuary.) All are welcome; if your animal companion does not travel well or enjoy the company of others, bring a photo or favorite toy for blessing in absentia.
Sunday School Registration: This Sunday marks the start of the Sunday School year! We invite you to drop by any Sunday to see our newly refurbished classroom, made possible by this spring's Feather our Nest campaign. To register your child for Sunday School for the coming year, please click here:
Even if your child is not an active participant in Sunday School, we ask all members of St. Mark's to fill out a registration form so that we can share information about other youth activities your child may be interested in. If you are not a member of St. Mark's, we invite you to fill out a form and we'll be in touch shortly to speak one-on-one with you about Sunday School and youth faith formation here at St. Mark's!
Confirmation Class: Rev. Suzanne will teach a confirmation preparation program this year for anyone interested in exploring their faith or being confirmed in the Episcopal Church. Candidates should be at least 14 years old. A first meeting to discuss the program will be held on Sunday, Oct. 16, at 11:30 a.m. E-mail RevSuzanneWade@gmail.com for more information.
Community Garden: Once again, St. Mark's has a plot in the community garden and is growing vegetables for the Westford Food Pantry. Help weeding and watering is always welcome. For information, see Brenda Martin or email the church office at email@example.com.
