In 2006 our parish began to look at ways to more effectively minister to community around us. The culmination of that work is the ‘Raising the Roof’ campaign, which was launched in February 2007. The plan – to expand our church’s capacity to meet the ever growing needs on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. It is Good News to be in a church community that has doubled its parish list in less than a ten year period. We had an exciting 2007 as we encouraged support from our membership and moved through the process of receiving support from the Diocese of Huron. The success of our campaign and the support of our diocesan partner, our friends, and our parishioners has now brought us to this great place of celebration.

On July 20, 2008

we will have an official

Ground-Breaking.

The work will begin in August, but this gives us an opportunity to thank all who have brought us to this important point. We would be pleased if you could join us for this big day in the life of St. Mark’s by-the-Lake. Our Liturgy of Celebration will begin at 10:30 AM with an official groundbreaking outside, at the conclusion of the service at 11:45 AM. This will be followed by a light reception. Dr. Norm Becker, who is engineering the project, will be on hand with Contractor Fausto Volpatti to answer questions regarding the exciting new look of St. Mark’s by-the-Lake.

We would be honoured if you could join us on July 20th.
