Our journeys, our questions, and our experiences are all different, but we are committed to broadening our spirituality and joy as a community and our service to those around us. St Mark’s actively works to engage the spirit, mind, and body of every member in order to increase our capacity to do good as individuals and as a congregation.

After 60 years of growing, changing and developing, St. Mark’s stands at a crossroads as God’s outpost in Santa Clara.
We have and want to share the momentum and spirit that is developing us into the church we are called to be.

Join us for the journey of a lifetime.

You are welcome here.

Are you thinking about walking over the threshold into St. Mark's on a Sunday morning?  Whether you are brand new to faith or born and raised with faith, you are welcome here.

We offer two very distinct worship experiences on Sunday morning. Both are Eucharist (pronounced Yew-car-rist), the Greek word for Communion or the Lord’s Supper, which is Bread and Wine.

8 am in a few words:

Quiet
Ancient Languaged
Contemplative
Traditional

This smaller gathering is a great quiet start to your Sunday. Our Eucharist uses the Book of Common Prayer Rite I. This Rite contains some of the same prayers and language used in England during the time of Queen Elizabeth I. The language is beautiful and traditional.

10 am is:

Festive
Eclectic

Our 10 am Eucharist uses prayers from across the globe of the Anglican Communion.It is not unusual to hear everything from classical to contemporary music to spirituals in one worship service.
