An Oasis in the Midst of Marin

 
Welcome to St Mark’s Church, a church of the Anglican Province of Christ the King.  This is the place where
 Christian families in Marin County gather to celebrate the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ, when God entered the world to save us.  We celebrate the Faith of our Fathers, the Faith that was passed down by Jesus to His Apostles, then passed down to us through succession, through the centuries. 
The  Traditional Anglican way of worship is still viable today.  Tradition helps us enter a Holy place, where prayer is contemplative and at the same time corporate.  We desire to hear the Word of God and spend our time in adoration and thanksgiving.  Our altar is where we experience the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass each Sunday.   
Sunday Mass is at 10 am.  Morning Prayer is Thursday at 10 am.  We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the 1940 Hymnal.  The church is located at:  1129 Magnolia Avenue, Larkspur, CA 94939-1018.  Phone: (415) 461-6960  To find us: from Hwy 101, take the Sir Francis Drake exit (West), turn left onto Bon Air Road, past the Hospital, turn right on Magnolia and find 1129.    

Worship God in the beauty of holiness

  1. Fr. Jim,
    Thanks — good sermon! Nicely stated and brief.
    I do not understand the term, “Catholic Faith” used at the top of the home page. Can you please give me a short explanation?

  3. Thanks, Howard on both accounts.

    Catholic as you remember from your Roman Catholic upbringing is defined as “universal.” If you look at the Creed again you will see the four Marks of the Church. One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic are the four.

    By the Creed, History, the power of the Holy Ghost through Apostolic Succession, we Anglicans are part of the Catholic faith. The Roman church, the Easter Orthodox churches are also part of the Catholicity. We are English Catholics. You are Roman Catholics. We use the English Missal to say Mass. It was the basically the Roman Missal used by English priests at the time of Henry in England.

    The Protestant Reformation churches would not call themselves Catholic. We don’t claim to be protestant against the Church.

    Sometimes Roman Catholics believe they own the use of the word, “Catholic.” The Apostolic, Catholic Faith is that faith handed down by Christ Jesus himself to his Apostles, who in turn passed the faith down to priests. Originally there were presbyters and deacons. The early church, sometime after the 2nd century, established Bishops, Priests and Deacons, as those in Holy Orders. There was no title “pope” only the bishops of Rome and the other great cities. There were councils, seven of which we all agree about, East and West alike, though with some reservations about content and politics.

    This is why I use the word, “Catholic” to describe the faith we have on the website. I hope this is helpful.
