St. Mark's Rector, Father Gary Jackson
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU DID IT!: You far exceeded the $750 matching donation given to help complete construction of a new school building for our companion school, St. John’s Episcopal School in Siguatepeque, Honduras. $2,425 was shared to make it possible to pour the concrete floor before school starts in August.
Every blessing to you.
