A Special Vestry of the Parish of St Mark the Evangelist is hereby called to take place on April 6th following the 10:00 am celebration of the Holy Eucharist.  The purpose of the meeting is to hear the following motion:

"It is resolved that St Mark’s agrees to move toward the creation of a new parish to be named by the Bishop, in partnership with St Michael and all Angels and St Richard’s. Archdeacon Chris Dunn who will chair the meeting has outlined the rules of order in a letter to the parish, available by clicking here.


Parishioners are asked to prayerfully read and reflect on the Report from the Discernment Team.  A paper copy has been set aside for each household on the parish mailing list, or you can download a copy by clicking on this link. The following parish discussions about MAP matters are planned for St. Mark’s:

  1. A Town Hall meeting, facilitated by Archdeacon Chris Dunn will be held after the 10:00 am service on February 2.
  2. MAP will NOT be on the agenda at the Annual Vestry on February 23. The opportunity exists for a brief Q&A once the Vestry meeting is adjourned, but there will not be a facilitator present.
