  • I love St Marks! There are so many wonderful parishioners in this church! The Mayfair which is the Saturday before Mother's Day is the highlight of the year for the New Canaan Community, not just...

  • While the architecture is more common now, when it was built in 1960 it broke new ground. The spectacular reredos screen behind the altar depicts the journey of salvation in bronze sculptures.

  • Great church where everyone (white, black, Hispanic, Asian, etc.) forms one unbreakable body.
  • The current St Mark’s was constructed on the northern edge of New Canaan in the late-1950s, and embedded in its Modernist design are nods to neo-Gothic architecture. Accompanied by a separate bell tower, the church can seat 600 and has lots of exquisite details, from the vibrant stained glass on three sides to the free-standing altar and floor-to-ceiling reredos adorned with bronze sculpture by Clark Fitzgerald. Every element was designed purposely for this building. St Mark’s is on leafy grounds and becomes the center of attention in New Canaan for the May Fair, featuring rides, games, entertainment, delicious food (strawberry short cake of course) and the huge May Fair White Elephant Tag Sale.
