I am so grateful to the various groups that have brought us a new database, a new website, improved streaming, revitalized offices and gathering spaces, new memorial garden landscaping plans, a plan for a regathering and the list goes on and on. If you haven't looked at our website lately -- please check it out at stmarksfx.org. If you are on Facebook -- but haven't liked our community page -- please do so. And by all means -- if you have thought about getting more deeply involved in the parish -- this would be an excellent moment to do so. Every week there is some chance to help out the parish -- so be on the lookout for such opportunities here online, in the weekly bulletin, and reach out to the contact group for that ministry or activity.
In closing, a number of you are asking about the impact of the rise in COVID cases and hospitalizations, and I wanted to affirm a few of things.
