PRAYER CHAIN

"Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." —Philippians 4:6

The Prayer Chain receives the names of members, family and friends who have requested prayer. Seventy-plus members pray, each in their own way, for parishioners, family and friends who have requested prayers of various concerns. These may come because of a death, birth, illness, job loss, military service or struggles with children or parents.

Requests may be made so that only the prayer chain members offer prayers. Others may wish their requests included in the Prayers of the People in the Sunday and weekday liturgies. The Prayer Chain is known in the Saint Mark's community as being present and here for any and all who desire, need, count on prayer support. To be added to the Prayer Chain list, contact Erik Donner: edonner@saintmarks.org or 206.323.0300 x217.

Centering Prayer was suspended for the pandemic, and the ministry has made the difficult decision to discontinue this offering permanently.


The Labyrinth 

On New Year’s Eve each year, and on other special occasions, we lay down a giant labyrinth in the nave to give individuals the space to experience the peace, the quiet and the balance that the labyrinth path can bring. And, of course, the cathedral’s long-anticipated outdoor labyrinth is now available at any time for a prayerful meditation walk. Learn more here.
