Welcome to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in San Antonio Texas. Let us get to know you!
This program is designed especially for people new to St. Mark’s and for those who are considering whether to become a member of the community. It’s an opportunity to get to know one another as well as provide you with a clearer picture of how to connect at St. Mark’s. We will begin with an optional Docent tour of the church at 5.45pm, followed by dinner and conversation at 6.00pm with clergy and staff of St. Mark’s. It is offered two times this year. The date is October 3. Don’t hesitate to reach out any time to learn more about what’s happening and how to get connected! Contact Dina Aboul Saad for more information at

We will also gather at the Bishop Jones Center on Saturday, January 26 from 9.00am-2.00pm, where we will share a meal, meet the bishop, and cover some additional ground. The class is open all those seeking to be confirmed, received, or who would like a refresher. Confirmation will be on Sunday, April 28 at the combined 10.00am service. For more information, sign up online.
Youth Confirmation is for 8th grade youth and any high school students who would like to be confirmed. The class will meet for eight weeks throughout the winter and spring during the 10.10am formation hour. The youth will be led in discussion of topics including: church history, the sacraments, becoming a young adult, the community of the church, and living a life of faith. Students are allowed to miss only two classes. Class dates are as follows: January 27, February 3, 10, 17, 24, March 3, 24, and 31. Youth will be introduced to a mentor on Wednesday, February 6. Students will be expected to participate in the Day of Prayer and Service on Sunday, April 7; attend a dinner with the Bishop during the week prior to confirmation; and participate in a rehearsal for confirmation on Saturday, April 27.
