St. Mark's Lent and Easter Schedule


St. Mark celebrates Lent and Easter with special services and meals, beginning with Ash Wednesday on February 10th and continuing through the Easter celebration on Sunday, March 27th.

This year's them is based on the theme, "A Higher Calling."

Starting with Ash Wednesday, St. Mark begins a season of repentance as a preparation for Easter. It is a time when all should reflect upon the enormous burden that Christ carried for us, a burden that eventually led to the cross and His death for our sins. The Lenten season is culminated in the Maundy Thursday service which celebrates the Last Supper and the Good Friday service which remembers Christ's death on the cross.

Thank God, Christ's death is not the end of the message, but that it continues with the Good News of Christ's resurrection as celebrated on Easter Sunday morning.

The following is St. Mark's schedule of services for the Lenten and Easter season. Prior to each Lenten Service (not including Maundy Thursday and Good Friday), St. Mark serves a light meal at 6:00PM, followed by the evening service at 7:00PM.

St. Mark will be celebrating Holy Communion at all Wednesday evening services. Our prayers are with you during this most solemn and joyous season. May God grant you His richest blessings.
