How can I help?

St. Mark’s has attracted parishioners with a commitment to helping those in need, inside our parish within our community and in the world at large. But sometimes it’s difficult to know how to get started in putting your outreach energy into action. With that in mind, the Outreach Committee will regularly publish this list of St. Mark’s volunteer opportunities.

If you have an interest in participating, please get in touch with the appropriate sponsor. And, if you have ideas on a new outreach initiative, please contact the Outreach Committee. The Committee provides mentoring resources to help get you started. Contact Tim Dorgan (tdorgan@gmail.com) for more details.
