Art + Music
Music and art helps lift our souls.
Volunteer choir members, vocal and instrumental soloists, guest musicians and parishioners fill the sanctuary with sacred, secular and contemporary hymns of praise and thanksgiving. If you have the voice of an angel or just love to sing, please come, lift your voice in song as a gift to all. Contact Organist Helga Burtus at [email protected].
Friends of Music
Supporters of St. Mark’s music ministry are enthusiastic about helping enrich the lives of others through the gift of music. Thanks to their generous financial support, St. Mark’s is able to present a free Concert Series each year for our members and the Marco Island and Naples community.

Artists in Residence create prayers without words
St. Mark’s Artists in Residence (AiR) produce art as an expression of faith. Art can help the creator and the viewer engage more deeply in prayer, the contemplation of holy events and holy lives and how their very presence can give a sense of peace and calm. Come, marvel at the etched-glass windows depicting the Incarnation on display during Advent, the stained-glass windows celebrating the twelve days of Epiphany, or pray at the stations of the cross interpreting the Crucifixion of Christ showcased during the forty days of Lent.
St. Mark’s continues a tradition of excellence with special presentations of seasonal concerts for the community. Always a favorite, plan now to attend the Service of Advent Lessons, Anthems, and Carols each December and the others as announced. After each concert, our parish life hospitality team hosts a wine and cheese reception for all. Visitors are invited and encouraged to attend. Watch for the upcoming schedule to be announced.
