On Unity Within
the Catholic Church


The Parish of Saint Mark is a member of the Anglican Province of Christ the King, Western States Diocese.

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. - Jude 1:3

We profess the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Faith professed by the whole Church before the disunion of East and West; more particularly, as professed by the Church of England... - Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath and Wells, England (1637 ~ 1711)

The Parish of Saint Mark strives to teach and practice the "faith which was once delivered unto the saints", the original teachings of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, with nothing added or removed.

This is the faith of C. S. Lewis, T. S. Eliot and William Shakespeare. It is a Traditional Episcopal and Anglo-Catholic expression of the faith of the "One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church".

"[The Church is] Catholic; because it is universal, holding earnestly the Faith for all time, in all countries, and for all people; and is sent to preach the Gospel to the whole world..." (Book of Common Prayer, p. 291)

We seek to "follow Christ, to worship God...and to work and pray and give for the spread of his Kingdom." (Book of Common Prayer, p. 291)
