St. Mark's Rector, Father Gary Jackson
Welcome to St. Mark’s Episcopal Community, a Church and an Academy, working together to proclaim God’s love in learning, word and sacrament.
Established in 1878,
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church
is a beautiful, historic parish, filled with love, tradition, scripture, prayer, and fellowship. We are a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida,
The Episcopal Church U.S.A., and centered on common worship and prayer as found in The Book of Common Prayer.
Our parishioners serve God and our neighbors in many ways. From preparing the Altar to feeding the homeless, from visiting the sick to singing hymns of praise, from assisting the priest at the Altar to preparing and serving refreshments for church fellowship, we live out the acts of service our Lord commanded us to do.
There are a variety of opportunities for you to grow in love of God, serve others, and to develop supportive friendships. Seeking spiritual growth is an important aspect of our worship. Through weekly bible study, book discussions, and Wednesday evening educational programs, our parishioners explore, enhance, and deepen their faith.
We invite you to join us.
Please call our parish office at
321-636-3781 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org

This month I will be working with a team from the Diocese of Dallas as they continue working on a new church plant, Saint Joseph’s. It is an Adobe brick church and the men have started applying stucco on the interior and exterior and windows and doors have been ordered as well. Each day is a one hour drive each way from the hotel to the community.
At my home, I have started the new 6’ security fence. Due to some concerns I needed to start this sooner than planned. The neighbor will also be assisting with some additional security lights. I am also hoping to build a small shed this year to put my tools and other supplies in. Currently everything is piled up in my bedroom and living room.
Please pray for a potential new church plant in my deanery. There has been little to no growth in well over 7 years and no new churches even longer than that. This is something I have asked about and prayed over since arriving over three years ago.
PRAISES: God’s providence! Community growth and involvement. A good start to 2020!
PRAYER REQUESTS: Financial gifts to cover the current budget shortfall. Potential new church plant.
I would love the opportunity to pray for you, talk about ministry plans or any questions you may have. Please email me. I’d love to hear from you.
Faithfully, your brother in Christ,
David Ledwitz, Missionary
Episcopal Diocese of Honduras, Comayagua Deanery
