Do you have a desire to participate more fully in the worship services at St. Mark’s? Our services are called “liturgies”, from the Greek work leitourgia, meaning “work of the people.” Our common worship is enhanced by all the volunteers to help make it great.
There are many different ways that people of all ages can participate in serving during the liturgy.
- Acolytes– 5th grade and up (including adults), carry the cross and torches, and help the priest set the altar table for communion.
- Eucharistic Ministers– Serve the Chalice during communion, and often hold the Gospel book (must be Confirmed)
- Lectors– read the Old and New Testament lessons each Sunday morning
- Intercessor– leads the prayers of the people each Sunday morning
- Altar Guild– prepares the altar and sanctuary before every services
