Sunday, April 27, 2014
9:30 a.m. festive worship
followed by reception
The congregation of St. Mark’s is looking forward with anticipation to St. Mark’s Day this Sunday, April 27th. The Rt. Rev. Jeffrey Lee, Bishop of Chicago, will be preaching and presiding at our 9:30 a.m. service that morning. (There will only be one service that day). Members of St. Matthew’s and St. Luke’s choirs will be singing with St. Mark’s choir and all three congregations will worship together! You are invited to join St. Mark’s as we celebrate 150 years of Being in Place, Growing in Faith, and Living from the Center in Evanston. After the service a reception will be held upstairs in Cunningham Hall.
For more information about St. Mark’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, contact the 150th Anniversary Steering Committee co-chairs, Marion Macbeth, Ted Richardson, and Christine Schultze by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
