At St. Mark’s we believe our call to live as disciples of Jesus Christ must include serving others. This isn’t a “let’s help those poor people over there” sort of thing, but rather an opportunity to work alongside and with our neighbors. Our world keeps growing smaller, and that means our neighborhood keeps growing.
We constantly seek ways to engage in hands-on service with the desire to establish on-going relationships with others. We regularly serve alongside the following organizations:
- Straight Ahead Ministries in meeting every couple of months on a Wednesday evening with young men at the DYS lock-up facility in Westborough .
- Our Father’s Table in Marlborough on a Monday night each month to feed the hungry.
- St. Francis House feeding program in Boston. Often on Sundays when colleges are on breaks.
- Southborough Food Pantry housed at Pilgrim Church right next door to us, on a Tuesday and Friday each month.
Open Plate Offering: Each month we designate our open plate offerings to a specific non-profit organization that we believe exemplifies our values. Any money not specified for St. Mark’s in our Sunday morning collection is given to them entirely. These organizations include:
