Welcome to St. Mark’s on the Hill!
We know it’s important work to explore different church websites, and we hope you find a great welcome in these pages. Even better, we hope you might feel inclined to stop in one Sunday morning at 10:30 am, and meet all of us at St. Mark’s in person!
Here you’ll find a welcoming and wonderful community of faithful people, diverse in every way. In fact, we’re proud to say we’re perhaps the most diverse congregation in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland! We’re a family-sized parish that takes to heart the two Great Commandments – to love God, and to love each other. Our worship life is rich in tradition, and beautiful in its liturgy and music. Our outward service to the community is both international, housing refugees and asylees in our former rectory on campus, and local, offering a food and toiletries pantry when Covid allows. And our community life is vibrant – from our annual Crab Feast to concerts and Mardi Gras pancakes, the Easter Egg Hunt, and Christmas Angels, all ages together celebrate life as Jesus’ people in community.
A word about the Covid pandemic. We are very careful to follow all guidelines and precautions set forth by the Diocese of Maryland’s [Regathering Covenant] document and the Governor of Maryland’s guidance, with mask use strongly encouraged during high-risk times, and social gatherings held outside during the summer. We’re grateful to say we have had no instances of community spread in our congregation. If you have recently had contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or are displaying symptoms, we ask that you join us via Facebook Live, until you are able to safely be around others.

Thank you again for visiting our website – and please consider joining us in person! If you find yourself looking for a deeper relationship with God and with faithful friends, St. Mark’s is a place for you to feel warmly welcomed as you explore. We hope you will find the joy and depth you’ve been longing for, right here at St. Mark’s on the Hill!
Yours in Christ’s love,
The Rev. Julia Fritts
