women of st. mark's

Established to unite

the women of the parish in a program of worship, study, service and fellowship.

We are focused on fellowship and community.

With many opportunities to volunteer, we strive to better our community while having fun. There are no dues or financial obligation required--only a willingness to meet people and participate!

We are blessed to provide monetary contributions to various organizations.

For nearly 30 years beginning in the late 1950's, the Women of St. Mark's operated the Bargain Counter as an ongoing fundraiser. It is this successful endeavor, and our varied events, investments, and fundraising activities that allows our organization to continue to support several local organizations with yearly outreach grants.
