Home / Learn / 20s and 30s

Young adults at Saint Mark’s gather regularly to connect, share their spiritual journeys and build community. We consider issues of faith, justice, ethics, and meaning—as we enjoy each other’s company and share a meal or social time together. Many of our members are new to the Episcopal church, so it is a comfortable and light-hearted way to explore what we believe, how we worship, and how we create joyful and resilient lives.
