Episcopal Church Women
Episcopal Church Women (ECW) is an organization that includes all women of the Episcopal Church. The ECW is organized on the National, Provincial, Diocesan, and local level.
At St. Mark’s, ECW women actively gather together throughout the year for fellowship, faith building, and service. The fellowship activities include a Fall gathering, a Christmas party, and a Spring salad supper.
Our Chili Cookoff in October is our major fundraiser. This includes a bake sale, silent auction, live music, and children’s activities. The money we raise is donated to numerous charitable organizations throughout Hays County and surrounding area as an extension of the outreach mission of St. Mark’s.
We look forward to seeing you at ECW gatherings!

St. Mark's supports the students at Texas State University and all students in higher education in the greater San Marcos area.
During the school year, college students are invited to meet weekly at St. Mark's or in parishioner's homes for a good meal, Christ-centered discussion, and a time of worship. The community St. Mark’s is constantly seeking out ways to support and encourage college students who are in the midst of this critical time of formation and growth.

St. Mark's is committed to the responsible environmental stewardship of the resources God has given to all of us. As Christians, it brings us joy and grace when we recognize the sacredness of creation and when we live our lives in a manner that respects and cares for the natural, environmental, cultural and human resources we have been given.
Celebrate Earth! is an adult spiritual formation process that helps us develop a heart-level relationship with Earth, our island home. Celebrate Earth! draws on scripture and tradition, science, contemplation/meditation, and action to help us recognize our island home as God’s creation and that we are its stewards, not its owners.
