Vietnamese American Services at St. Mark’s

Vietnamese American Services (VAS), a non-profit organization established to address current and emerging needs of the local Vietnamese Community, leases space in St. Mark’s Parish Hall and hosts a weekly Seniors Club.  VAS also provides access to affordable health care resources, food distribution and other services. In December 2021, VAS partnered with Continuum Health Care and Giant Pharmacy to bring a Covid 19 and Flu Vaccination Clinic to St. Mark’s for the community.  Although VAS was established to serve the local Vietnamese population, services they provide at St. Mark’s Fairland are available to all area residents, regardless of their national origin or religious affiliation.  Montgomery County Council President Thomas Hucker visited on December 23, 2021.

Episcopal Relief & Development to Assist in Haiti after Earthquake

On Saturday, August 14, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the southwest portion of Haiti. This devastating earthquake was followed by Tropical Storm Grace on Monday night and much of Tuesday. More than 1 million people, including more than half a million children, have been impacted by the back-to-back disasters, and the death toll is close to 2000. Episcopal Relief & Development and its partners are responding immediately with direct assistance to vulnerable households in the region, as partners plan long-term recovery. Your generous gift can provide assistance to help people in the wake of these disasters. To assist in these efforts, visit episcopalrelief.org/haiti-relief.

Bowie Baysox Outing on 26 June was a blast!

St. Mark’s is planning group outings so we can get out and have some fun together!
All who were able to join in our first outing, the Bowie Baysox Fireworks and Margaritaville special event had a great time! Thanks to everyone who came out.
  
We are looking for more opportunities to get together and are always open for new ideas!
 
 

HALLELUJAH! 

  We are gathering again for in-person worship on Sundays at 8:00 am and 10:30am, much as we did in the fall. We’ll wear our masks, maintain social distance, and have communion with the bread only. You may bring your own elements from home if you wish. .
