About St. Mark's

Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, St. Mark’s welcomes you.  Since 1878, we have gathered together on the shores of the Indian River Lagoon in Cocoa Village, for Christian worship and fellowship.  We join together from all walks of life in a shared desire to learn Christ’s teachings, be thankful, and be strengthened in resolve and courage to live by Christ’s teachings every day.

In 1956 our parishioners formed a parish day school to provide excellent elementary education in a safe environment that both nurtures a life-long love of learning and teaches children to be servant-hearted and civic-minded, whatever their faith.

As an Episcopal Church, we self-describe as ‘Protestant but Catholic,’ a middle way of Christianity that balances scripture, faith and reason, and is welcoming to all.

 

Service Times
Sunday 8-9AM, Rite I Eucharist (Holy Communion)
Sunday 9:30-10:10 Sunday School and Adult Forum Fellowship and Discussions
Sunday 10:30-11:30 Rite II Eucharist (Holy Communion)

We welcome all visitors to our worship services; and all baptized persons are welcome to share in the Holy Communion.

Our 10:30 service includes cathedral-style hymns, liturgical music, and sacred music.

All services use the beautiful language of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), the Episcopal prayer book.  It was first written in England in the 1500s, and is used throughout the Anglican Communion of over 50 countries and in more than 150 languages.  It is familiar to many Americans because Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian prayer books have borrowed from the Book of Common Prayer, and the marriage and burials liturgies of many denominations have drawn from it.
