Pastoral Care Team

St. Mark's has a Pastoral Care Team to attend to the pastoral needs of parishioners who are temporarily sick, hospitalized or simply unable to addend the regular worship services. The team is comprised of both clergy, Rector and Deacon, and lay chaplains (Home Lay Eucharistic Ministers). The team will be offering layers of care - from periodic visits with communion, to follow up calls and cards! Please call the church office to inquire about the Pastoral Care Team. In case of emergencies or after church hours, contact can be made directly to Rev. David Gibbons at the church office after-hours number.
