I’m New

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in St. Mark’s Church.

We know checking out a new church can be daunting. What will it be like? Will the people be welcoming? Will I find something I’m looking for?

Whatever the reason you’re searching for a church in your life right now, we hope you’ll check out St. Mark’s both virtually and in person.  Our Sunday worship schedule is both below and  to the right. If you have questions, you can ask our Parish Administrator at 508-481-1917 or office@stmarkssouthborough.org. Our rector, Phil LaBelle  can be reached directly at phil@stmarkssouthborough.org.

Many people in our congregation did not begin their lives as Episcopalians. Some are couples where one person is from a protestant background and one a Roman Catholic and they meet in the middle. Others are people who long for a traditional liturgy.  Some wanted a church where they could worship as a family.  Our parish is home to people who might not agree on issues or theology or who are different in other ways, but we all gather each week to share in communion and to pray with one another, and we recognize each other as sister and brother in Christ. We hope you’ll come and worship with us.

St. Mark’s is located at 27 Main St., Southborough, just west of the intersection of Rts 85 and 30 on Main St (Rt. 30). It’s the stone church in the historic center of town. Parking is available in the lot behind our Parish Hall — if coming from the Rt85/Rt 30 light, you’ll drive past the church to get to the driveway on the right. Additionally, you may park at the Southborough Town Hall lot to our east or a Fay School lot to our west (the driveway adjacent to the church entrance).  Our administrative offices, located in the Parish House, are open Monday through Friday, 9AM to 2PM.
