About St. Mark’s
The Episcopal Church of St. Mark the Evangelist is a unique parish located in the Diocese of Central New York in Syracuse. It is a destination church for both urban and suburban people. It has active parishioners involved in spiritual growth, pastoral ministries and outreach to the community. We are 25 years young, formed from four Episcopal churches of the Episcopal Syracuse Urban Cluster.

The result is an energetic, outward-looking, faith-filled and diverse body of individuals who make this church their spiritual home. We strive to reflect the teachings of Christ in our actions as well as the spoken word. Because we attract a rich blend of people, we have a variety of programs including a vibrant youth group, an emerging Sunday School, social groups that focus on mission, a wonderful music program, and vigorous outreach programs to the neighborhood. In our 25-year partnership with neighboring Porter Elementary School, we work with staff and parents to provide support for the students and their families. Our church building is open daily to many outside organizations for community activities.

St. Mark the Evangelist will be a beacon on the west side of Syracuse, New York, attracting people of every background, age and heritage to:

  • its joyful worship
  • its environment for spiritual growth
  • its thriving mission and outreach programs, and
  • its welcoming and inclusive openness to all God’s children.
