Night Prayer & Benediction
Thy Kingdom Come

St. Mark's is joining Anglicans through the world in a global wave of prayer. Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. The wave of prayer will start in May and run for 10 days between the Christian festivals of Ascension and Pentecost. It’s not complicated – we’re simply asking people to pray in whatever way they want and with whoever they want for others to come to know Jesus Christ. St. Mark's will gather for Night Prayer and Benediction on Sunday, May 28, at 7:00 pm. We invite you to join us as we unite with Anglicans around the world through prayer.

We will end our Rogation Walk in the parish garden of St. Mark's, where we will have a short mass beginning at the offertory, as our walk will have been the Liturgy of the Word. Our walk and mass will end before 7:00 pm with the singing of the Regina caeli before the Mary statue in the garden.

The St. Blase Blessing of Throats

The St. Blase Blessing of Throats will be after all three masses on Sunday, February 5, using two candles from the Candlemas liturgy on February 2. After the mass, proceed to the Blessed Virgin Mary Chapel and kneel at the altar rail for your blessing by the priest.

From the Book of Blessings:
Saint Blase was the bishop of Sebaste in Armenia during the fourth century. Very little is known about his life. According to various accounts he was a physician before becoming a bishop. His cult spread throughout the entire Church in the Middle Ages because he was reputed to have miraculously cured a little boy who nearly died because of a fishbone in his throat. From the eighth century he has been invoked on behalf of the sick, especially those afflicted with illnesses of the throat.
