UPDATE: Franklin County currently is at Level 4 (Purple) in the state of Ohio’s public health alert system. Following diocesan guidelines, all in-person worship is suspended while we remain in the current alert level, as we strive to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Note that diocesan guidelines do not permit live singing during services while the county’s alert level remains in purple. In the meantime, we will be seeking ways to incorporate recorded singing as well as virtual choir offerings until local conditions improve to the extent that we can resume live singing by cantors in our services.
Saint Mark’s is in Phase 2 of its regathering plan. The plan for services is guided by Franklin County’s current health alert level as determined by the Health Department. For in-person services, all in attendance are asked to wear a face covering, observe physical distance, and assist in other safety precautions.
Most other in-person activities are suspended until further notice as we seek to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus. We ask you to keep in your prayers all who have been affected by this pandemic and those who care for them.
Additional resources and online get-togethers are also shared on our events calendar and accessed through Zoom, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

PRAYER IN TIME OF ISOLATION
Almighty God: Our times are in your hand. We call upon you in this hour of our need, when we are lonely and must stand apart. Be our strength, O Sovereign Lord, our calm in the midst of raging seas, our refuge and our dwelling place. Sanctify to us this time drawn away from others, even as your Son, O Father, drew away to a lonely place for prayer. Deepen our need of you, O Lord, that every breath may be a whisper of the Spirit’s prompting, a renewed searching of the deep things of God. Stir up in us the great act of intercession, that we may spend our time apart in prayer for the world you created and sustain. Bless us in our turning toward you, and make us a blessing to those who stand in need of you, the whole fragile earth. All this we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Responding to Racist Violence
In this time of national upheaval, outrage, and fear, The Episcopal Church’s Department of Reconciliation, Justice and Creation Care and the Office of Government Relations have assembled resources to assist individuals, congregations and communities seeking to LEARN, PRAY and ACT. Those resources, including Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Pentecost Sermon, can be found here.
