St Mark’s—Islip, New York  - Serving the Lord Since 1847

Making Christ Known with Love

All are Welcome, and Visitors are Expected

           Thank You for visiting our WEB Site.  We are glad you came.


         Welcome to St Mark’s.  I do hope that you will come and visit us in person. As followers of Christ, within the Anglican tradition, we strive to build up a loving community that will be a beacon of love and hope to our world.

         We are a diverse and friendly congregation and try to welcome everyone as we would welcome Jesus. Join us as we reach out in joy into the world and in the name of Jesus to be of help to others. We take our ministry seriously, but always keep a good sense of humor about ourselves.

         Come and see.  Come and Visit. Come and participate in our worship and fellowship.  We have regular activities for everyone.


God’s blessings to You and Yours.


Yours in Christ,

A Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord.


We prepare ourselves for the Coming of Jesus: His first coming was on that Frist Christmas Morn. His Second Coming will be at the end of all time when God’s Kingdom is fully established.

But We also must prepare to see Him Daily.
