We welcome visitors into the church whenever our Rector, staff or volunteer parishioner is available to assist you. When the iron garden gate is open, feel free to come inside the courtyard and share a moment of silence and peace, in prayer or reflection near the beautiful outdoor crucifix featured there. If you would like to enter the church to light a prayer candle in our sanctuary, take a moment for a private prayer, or speak to a Priest, please ring the bell at the Parish Hall door on the south side of the gated entrance for assistance. If the personnel are available to accompany you into the church, you may have the opportunity to walk reverently throughout the sanctuary with a written guide available in the Narthex, which describes some of the beautiful features of our historic church building. Multiple wall murals were commissioned and painted by Father Bernard Geiser who came to St. Mark’s in 1931. He completed the murals in 1939. In 1962, until his death in 1965, he served as an Assistant Priest at the Parish of St. Mark. You will see stained glass windows from all eras of our history which were memorial gifts to the church; the Stations of the Cross are presented through ‘modern tiles’ dating to the 1950’s and are located around the outer walls of the Nave; the granite baptismal font, which is from the second building housing The Parish of St. Mark, dating to 1888, stands at the side door of the church and the entrance to the Lady Chapel. While having a look around, don’t forget to look upward to the rear of the Nave to view the beautiful, large round Rose Window flanked by the 2,153 pipes of the modern German tracker-action Werner Bosch organ. If you are a member of the neighborhood, look for signs announcing Open Houses, concerts or lectures which are held periodically in the church. As mentioned elsewhere in the website, you are always welcome to attend any of our services which are offered daily. If you would like more information about how to schedule a self-guided tour or a private tour, please send your inquiry to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church.
