Invitation to St Mark’s

A warm invitation to experience the wonderful Service of Choral Evensong at St Mark’s Anglican Church 95 Remuera Road, Auckland. Service starts 5.00pm Sunday 17 March 2019 (76th day of the year) and coincides with St Patrick’s Day. This was established early in the 17th Century as a Feast Day to celebrate recognition of St Patrick as the patron Saint of Ireland. Although this is occurring during Lent, which began 6 March to 18 April, traditionally restrictions on food and drink are lifted for the day.

Hymns: Jesus lover of my soul (Aberystwyth)
