 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)

At St. Mark’s we engage in events in our neighborhood, across St. Louis and throughout the world.  We advocate On Our Feet by participating in events such as St. Louis PrideFest, the Labor Day Parade, and other social justice rallies.  We advocate  through the Power Of Pens as we coordinate letter, email, or phone call campaigns regarding issues that concern respecting the dignity of every human being. These issues include (but are not limited to) hunger, the unhoused, LGBTQI+, education, immigration and refugees. Please contact the Rector for more information: mark@saintmarks-stl.org
