Jesus' Hands and Feet

St. Mark’s and St. John’s (SMSJ) is a center for mission where everyone is embraced exactly as they are. Together we share God's love by living out a Benedictine Spirituality where we work with, listen to and love all those we encounter. 


SMSJ is a community of "doers".  


We are committed to accompanying our neighbors, especially those living in extreme poverty, because we believe that's what Jesus would do.  


We pray for humility recognizing that "church" has not always been a safe and healing place for people over the past 125+ years of our history particularly for people of color, those in the LGBTQ+ community and women. And for this we earnestly pray for forgiveness. 


We are a community of learners. We look to understand the experiences of others more fully and take this mandate seriously by creating safe, joy-filled spaces where we listen and grow.


If you are looking to be part of a community that's not perfect, but eager to love, challenge and pray with and for you... come check us out.
