"The Episcopal Church Welcomes You". You've seen it on signs like this one all around the country. When you see this sign you know you're near a place where you'll be truly welcome. At St. Mark's, we know that you'll be made to feel at home. For most of the year, worship services are held at 10:00 AM on Sundays and at other times for special occasions. Please join us for worship and fellowship.
The Diocese of Bethlehem has accomplished its initial goals for the New Hope campaign in that the schools have been built, It total, we have built 5 primary schools, one secondary school, a tailoring training center, and a college. Our work, however, is not done. Currently, there are two needs...
- Since many secondary students live too far from the school to commute daily, they are currently sleeping on the floor. A dormatory is sorely needed at a cost of $50,000.
- Just as you wouldn't plant a garden and fail to care for it, continuing support of the schools is needed. While the parents, teachers, and community leaders are working hard to do so, they are as yet unable to go it alone.
Your support of eaither or both programs will be greatly appreciated. See. Fr. Earl or Jack Welsch.
