St. Mark’s has a comfortable mix of both long-standing and newer members. Some families are second and third generation parishioners and many have worshipped at St. Mark’s for decades. New members steadily arrive at St. Mark’s and find our parish hospitable and nourishing.
St. Mark’s is the second largest Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Florida and is one of the 25 largest churches in the country. Those who come to St. Mark’s enjoy the beautiful setting for worship, reflection, spiritual growth and fellowship. The people of St. Mark’s want to make a difference. God has richly blessed us with both the vision and resources to make a difference for Christ in the world. Today we continue to celebrate our history, to plan for our future, and to offer the present time to God, giving thanks for our clergy who celebrate with us our life in Christ.
