How do I become a member?
You can become a member of St. Mark’s by making a pledge of financial support in an amount that you discern; there is no minimum or maximum limit. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Finance Manager, Patricia Schans, via e-mail or by calling 202.543.0053. For more information about pledging at St. Mark's, click here.
You can learn about St. Mark's through the Introduction to Life at St. Mark's class. Offered 3-4 times each year, this Sunday afternoon class provides a thumbnail sketch of our communal ethos - our vision (who we are and how we see ourselves) and our vocation and values (what we do and how we do it). Later, you may wish to participate in the Life, Community, and Faith class. Offered twice annually, LCF is a 10-week exploration with other fellow "explorers" into deeper engagement in our communal life.
If you are interested in formal membership in the Episcopal Church, you are invited to take part in the twice-annual "What's An Episcopalian?" class, which focuses on the history, theology, and liturgy of the Anglican/Episcopal Church and serves as preparation for the Rite of Confirmation. If you already have been Confirmed in the Episcopal Church, you may desire to have your membership recorded in St. Mark's official Parish Register by obtaining a Letter of Transfer from your previous parish home.
