Confirmation Class is available for teens in 8th - 12th grade. Typically, a class is held every other year or when there is a critical mass of students. Through Confirmation, young people develop relationships with their peers, ask questions about the Church, learn about Episcopal traditions, grow in their faith, and become adult members of the Body of Christ. Confirmation is celebrated by one of our Bishops at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston. For more information, contact Jeanie Pecora, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Youth Groups for Middle School and High School Students perform service projects that help people inside and outside the St. Mark’s community, while also having fun in each other’s company. Activities have included running the children’s craft area at the annual Chocolate Festival and hosting a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. Occasionally, members of the Youth Groups also prepare all the food and serve the meal at St. Paul’s Soup Kitchen at Eliot Presbyterian Church in Lowell. They also participate in parish-wide cleanup days, which involve projects such as raking leaves in the fall and planting flowers in the spring.
