Founders Day Celebration
Combined 10.00am Service with grand reception following
Join us for a celebration of St. Mark's heritage and our place in it. During the reception in Gosnell Hall following the combined 10.00am service, Mayor Nirenberg plans to join us to celebrate our history and the impact St. Mark's has had in the city. Beth will remind us of our story, both past and present. And we will cap the reception with a long-standing tradition at St. Mark's!
The Rev. Beth Knowlton and Lewis Fisher were recently interviewed about our 160th anniversary on Focus on South Texas. View the interview.
Founders Day Coloring Book and Face Painter
We will have activities for children and youth during the Founders Day Celebration following the 10.00am service. In Tucker Courtyard, there will be St. Mark's Coloring Books and a face painter. Special thanks to Meredith Rogers and all her hard work on assembling this coloring book!
