…Mary set out and went with haste…
to everyone who has contributed to our Keansburg service this year. with your help, we are crossing the threshold of 15,000 meals served since inception in December 2012. Many people less hungry with warmed hearts! Happy Holidays from our Keansburg Team!
It's a venerable tradition of the Church to bless homes around Epiphany, and this year we are trying something totally new: We are trying to bless every home in the parish sometime between January 2nd and January 6th! Sign up at
to tell Fr. Rick what times/days work for you and yours.
Blood Drive Results
Partnering with our friends at Congregation B’nai Israel, on November 25th we hosted the most successful Blood Drive in St. Mark’s recent history. The Red Cross reports that we collected 35 pints of blood, exceeding our goal by 10 pints. And more importantly, those 35 donated pints of blood saved 105 lives! Thank you to all those who donated, and please watch for announcements of our next drive.
For weekday/weeknight events and activities, we will follow the Bernards Township Board of Education. If school is cancelled, or if school evening activities are cancelled, then St Mark’s will be closed during those times as well.
For Sundays, barring some catastrophic event, there will ALWAYS be at least a 10AM service. All parishioners are strongly urged to use their best judgement, and not to attempt any feats of heroism to get to church. On occasion we will cancel the 8AM service while roads and walks are cleared. This will be communicated by email by 7AM.
The 10AM service is nearly always broadcast live on Facebook:
Every effort will be made to ensure that snowy Sunday 10AM services are indeed broadcast.
Please be sure that you are on the St Mark’s mailing list, as any cancellations or notices will be communicated by email. You can sign up for the list on the website, or by calling the church office at (908) 766-9058.
Come and join us for painting on a Tuesday, 12pm to 3pm in the large Sunday school classroom. We work on our own projects and help each other out. It’s fun, relaxing, and we’re a friendly group.
Any questions, contact Jenny Phillips
