ST. MARK’S is a richly diverse, inclusive community set in an area of Hampton now known as Coliseum Central. The mission discerned as God's call for this parish celebrates this diversity as a unique gift, to be used to serve God in witnessing to the all-embracing love of Christ in the world as we serve those in any need – spiritual, physical, emotional, financial - believing that God’s love offers life abundant with purpose and meaning, with fulfillment and joy for all.
Our BAPTISMAL COVENANT with its commitment to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves and to strive for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being, .sets the agenda for our life together and our outreach to the world about us. We believe we are called to live out this covenant with intentionality and joy. So our mission is carried out with a strong commitment to pastoral care, both within the parish family and in the surrounding community through comprehensive and proactive outreach programs – and with an open and generous sharing of the facility with which we have been blessed with a variety of non-St. Mark’s group. The Metropolitan Community Life Church was here at St. Mark’s for a year during their search for new property, and an Hispanic Mission of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in need of a space for their community has been here for over 5 years.
