RUMMAGE SALE THANK YOU, THANK YOU
We would like to thank everyone who got involved in one way or another with the Fall 2018 Rummage Sale. We netted just over $9,000.00. This year, the April and September Rummage Sales totaled $20,000.00 – an incredible achievement considering that we sell everything so cheaply. It is very gratifying to see the St. Mark’s community come together in order to make this important fund raiser such a success. The Rummage Sale would not be possible with out your involvement and your kind donations. We are very fortunate to be members of a parish that gives so generously to support the Church. We hope you enjoyed the fellowship we experienced during rummage week.
Our next sale will be April 5th & 6th, 2019. Again, many thanks for making the Fall 2018 Rummage Sale such a success.

Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day - October 6th
Freedom House has joined forces with The Partnership for A Drug-Free New Jersey for Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day. Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day is a project of the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey, in cooperation with the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse; the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Addiction Services; and the Community Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Morris.
On October 6, New Jersey volunteers will lead an effort to help protect families and communities from the tragedies of overdose and addiction by hanging door knockers in their communities.
While it’s becoming more difficult to ignore the tragedies associated with this epidemic, there are still many people who are unaware of the link between prescription opioids and heroin abuse.
It's time to make sure every New Jersey resident is equipped with information that could help save lives. Please join us to help Knock Out Opioid Abuse on October 6. For more information please visit:
Nick Sant Foster will be having a photography exhibit at the Bernardsville Library during the month of October. Everyone is invited!
