The mission at St. Mark is analogous to the mission and purpose of the Orthodox Church-the sanctification and salvation of all its members (the Body of Christ) through the participation of the Divine Eucharist and the other sacred Mysteries of the Church. The Orthodox Church is not an human organization. The Orthodox Church is the ark of salvation. It is the totality of all who confess the same belief in Christ as the Lord and Savior of all mankind, united in the same Orthodox Faith.
Our mission is to proclaim the Orthodox Faith and the Holy Gospel, and to build the spiritual life of our faithful according to Holy Scripture, Holy Tradition, and the canons of the Holy Apostles and Ecumenical and Local Councils of the Orthodox Church.
