Our Community

We love our community by sharing our space with our community partners.

St. Mark’s has been the host and home of 4th Whitby Beavers, Cubs and Scouts for more then 60 years.  In addition to 4th Whitby packs meeting weekly, St. Mark’s also hosts Scouts Canada Area Meetings, trainings and special events.
