St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is committed to the women of the parish. In partnership with our parish life and adult formation committees – as well as in the context of programs designed exclusively for women – women’s ministries connects and empowers the women of St. Mark’s as leaders, parents, and believers.
We provide opportunities by which women develop abiding and life-giving friendships as we reach out with Christ’s love to one another and to the wider world.
At St. Marks, there is something for every woman. We warmly invite you to explore our ministry, learn about our programs, and join in the fun.

Women’s of St. Mark’s mark your calendars for three upcoming fall events:
How Our Holy Celebrations Shape Our Faith

Author Michelle Van Loon, who spoke powerfully to us last year on regret will speak on her new book, Moments & Days: How Our Holy Celebrations Shape Our Faith. From the book description: “By introducing (and reintroducing) us to the feasts and festivals of the Bible, as well as the special celebrations of the Christian calendar, Moments and Days restores a sacred sense of time throughout our year, enriching our experience of each “holy day” and enlivening our experience of even the most “ordinary time.” Childcare is available.
