Dear St. Mark’s Family,
As St. Mark’s plans for another year of its mission, I am reminded of each generation’s faith in the goodness of God, and God’s faithfulness to all generations. Through worship, welcome, outreach and formation, we undertake the Gospel responsibilities we inherited. The priests and the people each have a purpose in gathering and proclaiming the word of God, and the psalmists calls us to make a joyful noise in response to the steadfast love of God.
All generations react to the beauty of music, which is an especially wonderful and unifying gift. For 2017, my hope is to further grow our music ministry, and to share it with as many people as possible.
The annual budget is our way of being accountable and responsible with the gifts of money we receive. Each year we invite you to commit a financial gift to the mission of St. Mark’s. As we plan for our work in 2017, I hope you will be generous with your financial resources. We faithfully use those resources for the mission of Jesus in this current generation and to prepare for the generations to come.
I continue to be grateful to serve as your rector. St. Mark’s is a blessing to many people — including my family.
The Rev. Patrick J. Miller, Rector
