Community Service


We encourage and support our members to represent St. Mark's through community service.  We are actively involved in many projects and organizations.


Among them are:


Penn Yan Christmas Program, Penn Yan Food Pantry, Adopt-A-Highway, Habitat for Humanity, The Humane Society of Yates County, The Living WellYates Concert SeriesMilly's Pantry, Weekend Back Pack Program, The Crop Walk, and Community Theatre.

Farm Worker Memorial Service


St. Mark's hosted a memorial service for a dairy worker who died in an industrial accident to raise awareness about worker safety and the plight of undocumented workers.

The Crop Walkers


CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local congregations or groups to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world.

Grandma's Kitchen


We volunteer once a month to feed students at Penn Yan Academy  after class and before extra-caricular activities.

The Living Well


We have long been a supporter of the Living Well, a ministry of the Penn Yan Council of Churches. Through fund raising events and the presence of our members as volunteers we continue to help those who are less fortunate in our community.

Habitat for Humanity


St. Mark's has long been a sponsoring congregation for Habitat for Humanity. Members of the parish participate in builds as they can and feel blessed by this way of supporting people in need of a place to live.

The Road Stewards


The parish has adopted two miles of highway north of the village. We gather from time to time to walk the road and pick up the litter.

Please remember St. Mark's in your Estate Planning.
