Over the years, each has contributed to our liturgical collection:
Often, artists have stepped forward to create something special for us: in 1996, when the Chancel Choir was planning its first trip to England, a chalice and paten was designed by a parishioner and resides in the treasury of the cathedral. In 2002, when the Lichfield Cathedral choir came to us, Lynda Smith-Bugge used some of what remained of the original boxwood planted around the courtyard and turned a ciborium (container for the consecrated host used at communion) as a gift.
From the Visual Arts Group came the idea to offer short classes in conjunction with Christian Ed, that would be one-day opportunities for parishioners to tour an art exhibit led by one of our knowledgeable artists, followed by a return to church for a discussion and opportunity to try their hand at similar techniques. Classes called “Beyond the Frame” continue according to shows at local galleries and museums.
Art shows, where these and other members of the parish exhibited and sold art were numerous. Most recently, St. Mark’s hosted Vassar College’s Haitian Art Show and Sale to benefit a mission project on that island.
