Welcome to Our Parish!

 

St. Mark's Orthodox Church is a pan-orthodox parish in the Diocese of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania of the Orthodox Church in America. We are a growing, active parish with a deep love for the traditional life of the Eastern Orthodox faith. Please examine our website to become acquainted, but better still come and visit us for any of our services. The About tab includes a comprehensive presentation about the Orthodox Christian Church, our Calendar tab provides you with the usual schedule and the monthly schedule.   And our Media tab provides access to weekly bulletins and other forms of media information and documentation about our parish.  Resources provide links to a variety of educational, liturgical and church related content. The Donate button offers you the opportunity to financially support us as the Lord inspires you, while our Capital Campaign tab will have information on the campaign we hope to have for our building/expansion project.

In the Incarnate Word of God,

Lift up your gates O Heavens!

Heaven is what Christ gives back to us, what we lost through our sin and pride, through our earthly, exclusively earthly, sciences and ideologies, and now it is opened, offered, and returned to us by Christ. Heaven is the kingdom of eternal life, the kingdom of truth, goodness and beauty. Heaven is the total spiritual transformation of human life; heaven is the kingdom of God, victory over death, the triumph of love and care; heaven is the fulfillment of that ultimate desire, about which it was said: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Cor 2:9). All of this is revealed to us, all of this is given to us by Christ. And therefore, heaven permeates our life here and now, the earth itself becomes a reflection, a mirror image of heavenly beauty. Who descended from heaven to earth to return heaven to us? God. Who ascended from earth to heaven? The man Jesus.
