St. Mark's Episcopal Church - LeRoy, NY
Opening doors, minds, hands, and hearts with Christ's love

Upcoming Events

 

 

St. Mark’s Church hosts a monthly ecumenical community discussion series “Community for Understanding.” We articles and read books to tackle big topics related to social issues, our responses, and our faith.  This will be a safe place to meet with other community members, and meetings will emphasize civility in discourse with faith considered in its broadest sense from all religious experiences.  Free and open to all.  Most books are easily found in our local libraries and some are available as digital books and audio books on Hoopla.  St. Mark's will provide copies of titles that are less available.  

First meeting is on Wednesday, October 12 at 7:00 pm to discuss Elie Wiesel's speech "The Perils of Indifference," which is available to read or watch here.
