Tuesday, September 19 at 6:30 pm - COMMUNITY FOR UNDERSTANDING Discussion series starts

St. Mark’s Church hosts a monthly community discussion series “Community for Understanding.” This year, we'll meet 6 times from September through March on the third Tuesday of each month (except November - 2nd Tuesday) at 6:30 pm.  We will not meet in December.  All are welcome to join in by reading the selected book prior to the discussion.  Books are available in the church office one month prior to the discussion (hours include Sunday mornings and Monday - Thursday from 7:00 am to 12:00 noon).  The books for this series include:

  • September 19 - Wings in Flight by Sandra Whiting - Discussion questions here
  • October 17 - The Day the World Came to Town by Jim DeFede - Discussion questions here
  • November 14 - Diary of a Young Naturalist by Dara McAnulty
  • January 16 - Poverty, by America by Matthew Desmond
  • February 20 - We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride
  • March 19 - A banned book of your choice

While the books in the series are about many different things, they all have the theme of community--and the importance of community in them.  We aren't much without each other is something that has been profoundly realized during the last three years, both in the isolation of the pandemic and in the realization that we also have a pandemic of loneliness.  Let's connect with each other!  If you are interested in reading books, discussing ideas, and meeting others, you are invited to join us to talk about each of these.  If you have questions, contact us through Facebook or by e-mailing Enable JavaScript to view protected content..


Saturday, September 23 at 6:30 pm - OPERA ON THE OATKA

Make sure to mark your calendars for Opera on the Oatka on Saturday, September 23 at 6:30pm. Mezzo-soprano and LeRoy resident Heather Davis will present a free 60-minute vocal recital including opera arias and art song selections inspired by the themes of the four seasons and water. And don't worry if you're not familiar with (or are even a little intimidated by) opera and classical art song, as this is the perfect opportunity to dip your toe into exploring a bit of that world with Heather as she shares context about composers, song text, and opera storylines in a way that's fun, engaging, and approachable!
