Pentecost and Ladybugs

Sunday, May 15, at both the 8am and 10am services, we will celebrate Holy Eucharist on Pentecost Sunday.  It is the day of the church year when we recall the coming of the Holy Spirit to empower and lead us as God’s people.  St. Mark’s will be releasing thousands of lady bugs into our gardens to celebrate, that we too are sent out into the wild world to make it a better place.


In addition to the ladybugs, St. Marks will be blessing bicycles (of any shape and size) in preparation for the summer.  Ride or bring your bikes to have them blessed after both services.
