Staying true to its long history and commitment to justice and mercy through worship and the arts, poetry, dance, and historic preservation, St. Mark's Church In-The-Bowery, the Rev Anne Marie Witchger, Priest in Charge announces plans for its annual Good Friday Blues on Friday, March 29th noon to 3:00 p.m.
This service will be streamed via St Marks You Tube channel.

This service was conceived 23 years ago by Bishop Catherine Roskam, and Jeannine Otis in collaboration with the Saint Marks Choir

"The experience is a spiritual journey, " says Jeannine Otis, Director of Music at St. Mark's Church In-The-Bowery. "Through the genre of the blues, which evokes the history of struggle and dealing with challenges, we explore the unbreakable connection to and boundless love from God that emerges in even the darkest times. It is beautifully cathartic."
