"Judie and I, along with our two kids, have been part of the St. Mark's community since 1998."

~ Scott Hilton


"We have had a wonderful experience meeting so many caring parish members over those years as we raised our family in Westford.  The relationships we have established through St. Mark’s have enriched our lives in so many ways."

~ Tom Ellis


"My family joined  St. Mark’s in 1997, shortly after we moved from the DC area.  Since joining I have enjoyed participating in the church community in many ways. Currently, I served as the Family Ministries Leader, and on the Vestry as the liaison for Westford Preschool at St. Mark’s."

~ Judie Hilton


"I started attending St. Mark’s because I wanted my children to learn about God and belong to a friendly, loving church. Now that my children are grown I volunteer on the St. Mark’s Vestry Board because I enjoy the company of the wonderful people of St. Mark's and the charitable work they do."

~ Chrissy Hemingway


"St. Mark’s has been my spiritual home since the early 1980s, and it was an important part of our three children's spiritual formation. One of the things that I love about St. Mark’s is our commitment to service in the broader community. For a small church, we do a lot charitably as well as working for social justice."
