Presiding Bishop Eaton’s visit to St. Mark

Schaaf Lecture 2015 | St. Mark Lutheran Church Belleville IllinoisELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton visited St. Mark the weekend of March 21-22, 2015 to offer the 8th Schaaf Memorial lecture on Saturday evening and to preach for a worship service held with both St. Mark and St. George’s Episcopal Church on Sunday morning. More than a year in planning, with the help of many St. Mark members, the event was a tremendous success. It was an incredible honor to host the Bishop Eaton. We are blessed for having had her among us, as is the entire Church she leads.
