Youth School Happenings -
The youth groups will be meeting again on 2/9 and 2/16 this month. On Sunday the 9th, we are looking forward to a yoga session with Christine Marston! We will also start collecting and preparing our Easter baskets for those in need.
The SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER is February 25! We are calling all volunteers ready, willing and able to lend our youth a hand, to please join us, on Tuesday, the 25th, for the annual feast. All positions are available, from set-up to break-down, and everything in between - cooks, adult overseers, servers (and of course all who would like to lend an appetite!). If this sounds like the ministry you’ve been looking for, please email Chip Rubendall firstname.lastname@example.org. Be certain to watch for upcoming details.
As we feed our teens both spiritually and physically on Sunday mornings, we are always in need of bagel donors!

Online Directory Updates
Have you seen our online directory recently? We have been doing some work to update the information and would appreciate your checking out your entry and letting us know if we need to make any edits.
We have many directory listings with no photos and would love to change that. You can either send the office a photo and we will upload it or we can take one here at St. Mark’s. And the same goes for those of you who would like an “updated” photo.
When the Magi followed the star to Bethlehem, they came and blessed the home of the Holy Family with this presence. Ever since, Christians have blessed homes on, or around, the Feast of the Epiphany, which always falls on January 6th. This January, we are going to try and bless every home in the parish – and, we’d love to bless the home of a neighbor, friend, or relative while we’re in your neighborhood.Start off your decade with a blessed home. Call or email the church office to let us know when in January would be a good time for Fr Rick to drop by.(908) 766-9058 or
We’ll next meet on Tuesday, February 11 at 12:30pm - 2:30pm in the large Sunday school classroom, with art teacher Linda Quinn. Feel free to stay later to paint some more. It’s fun, relaxing, and we’re a friendly group, come join us.
