Community Partnerships

St. Mark’s, together with the Cathedral of St. Paul is committed to working with local organizations to advocate for systemic change within the city of Erie. We are actively building coalitions, developing relationships with other advocacy groups, and working with local government officials.

By listening to our community partners and other organizations in the city, we seek to meet needs in Erie – whether we are partnering to hold events, assisting with fundraisers, administering aid, we strive to support the mission of the community and the kingdom of God.

We are proud to partner with  Erie PrideCatholic Charities ResettlementUSCRI Erie
Benedictines for Peace and Our West Bayfront.

Did you know that Erie Episcopal volunteers each week with both Catholic Charities resettlement programs and USCRI in Erie. Volunteers help with donations; help settle apartments and more. Additionally, Erie Episcopal volunteers assist with the English as a second language classes by being conversation partners. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Mary Ann Ramey.

Erie Episcopal is helping families with essentials upon arrival to Erie. Items in especially low supply are
deodorant and feminine maxi pads (no tampons). Toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand soap, and shampoo
and conditioner are also always needed. Please consider bringing any amount of these items to St.
Mark’s and placing them in the bin near the front door.
