Helping others

We are active in LeRoy and our region, as well as engaged in projects globally.

 

St. Mark's Mitten Tree

St. Mark's begins Advent (the liturgical season between Thanksgiving and Christmas) each year by putting up a tree.
On the tree are tags from the Salvation Army with names and ages of children needing gifts. Everyone is encouraged to
take one or more tags and buy gifts to be returned and put under the tree by Sunday, December 8th.

As the tags are removed, the tree is decorated with hats and mittens. These hats, mittens, and occassional socks, are
donated to the local police and fire departments to be given out as needed.

 

Food for those in Need

Each Sunday during the offeratory, food is collected for the LeRoy Food Pantry and the Backpack Club. 

Food is collected year round, as hunger never takes a holiday.
