I’m New Here


Ongoing Newcomer Events at Saint Mark’s Cathedral

Coffee & Conversation: On the first Sunday of the month, after the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services, we host newcomers for coffee, light refreshments and conversation with members of our clergy and the congregation. It’s a great opportunity to become acquainted with Saint Mark’s and each other. If you are new to Saint Mark’s or the Episcopal Church, please come. We want to get to know you better.

Brunch for Newcomers: Periodically during the year, we host newcomers at a brunch after the 11 a.m. service. The brunches offer a great opportunity to meet Saint Mark’s parishioners and staff members and learn more about activities and ministries at the cathedral. Watch for time and place to be announced.

Classes: In the fall and spring we offer Inquirers Classes–a great opportunity to engage the Christian faith and learn about the Episcopal Church and Saint Mark’s. The series runs for several weeks and can be used as preparation for confirmation and reception into the Episcopal Church. Some like to attend these classes after being a way from the church and make a Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows. Read about other adult classes here.

Confirmation & Baptism: These are two common and very good reasons for initiating a relationship with a church. Saint Mark’s offers preparation for both confirmation and baptism. The first step for either should be a conversation with a member of our clergy. We would be pleased to help you plan and prepare for these sacred events.
