Welcome!
Welcome to Our Parish!

St. Mark's Orthodox Church is a pan-orthodox parish in the Diocese of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania of the Orthodox Church in America. We are a small, but active parish with a deep love for the traditions and practices of the Eastern Orthodox faith.

Please examine our website to become acquainted, but better still come and visit us for any of our services.  The About tab includes a comprehensive presentation about the Orthodox Christian Church, our Bulletin tab lets you read the most recent and immediately past editions of our Bulletin.  And our Resources tab provides information for Youth, information on the Scrip program, another way of supporting the parish financially while doing our regular shopping. Additionally, an up to date Liturgical Resources page with propers for the Sunday services of the year is found in our Resources tab.  This latter project is ongoing and increasingly inclusive.  Our website is an ongoing and ever expanding resource, visit us often.

Thank you for visiting St. Mark's virtually.  We look forward to welcoming you in the flesh.


In the Incarnate Word of God,
Fr. Martin and the Faithful of St. Mark's

Coffee with Sister Vassa

Spend less than ten minutes learning about one of the saints commemorated by the Church during the coming week.  Sister Vassa may not explain it all, but she does offer interesting insights on how the saints we remember offer us their example and prayers as we seek to follow Christ in a world not so different from theirs.

For background on Sister Vassa see the following on the ROCOR website:

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

St. Mark's Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, which is presided over by The Most Reverend Mark (Maymon), Archbishop of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within Wrightstown and the local area. 

More Information >

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
