Traffic and pedestrian circulation during construction
While Saint Mark’s is under construction, there are a few directions to note as you move about the campus. Pedestrians, please pay attention to any roped or barricaded areas and traffic cones and follow all signage directions. The front doors of the cathedral will always be accessible, but you may need to take a circuitous route to get there safely, and using the new wheelchair ramp. Drivers are also asked to pay attention to signage, taking the narrow road behind the cathedral to access the south parking lot. Please do not exit through the entrance driveway! The exit driveway is still open. The driveway in front of the cathedral will generally be blocked off, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., but open on the weekends.

Cathedral Office seeks volunteer
We have an opening for a front desk volunteer in the cathedral office on Fridays, 9:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. This ministry provides the initial contact to many people who come to Saint Mark’s. It primarily entails greeting visitors and answering the phone, and assisting with office projects as needed. Interested in joining this friendly and dedicated team? Contact Erik Donner at 206-323-0300 ×217 or edonner@saintmarks.org.

Saint Mark’s is now live streaming worship services
Palm Sunday, April 9, 2017, marked the first official Sunday that Saint Mark’s live streamed video of the 11 a.m. worship service. This service is offered for anyone who cannot attend Sunday worship, for newcomers who wish to “check out” what worship is like at Saint Mark’s, as well as for anyone around the Diocese and beyond who wish to tune in. In addition to the regular 11 a.m. service on Sunday mornings, Saint Mark’s will stream Evensong services once per month, along with select special events. This production was made possible in part by a Congregational Development grant awarded by the Diocese of Olympia. You can view the livestream at saintmarks.org/livestream.
