St Mark’s Florence

St Mark’s Church in Florence is one of three worship centres that form a chaplaincy of the Church of England in the Diocese in Europe, known as St Mark’s Florence with St Peter’s Siena.

We have been serving the people of Tuscany, and the many visitors to the area on our current Florence site, for over 132 years. With the Sunday Sung High Mass at the centre of its active liturgical life, St Mark’s also has an extensive music and cultural scene, with its own concert and Mass choirs, St Mark’s Opera, as well as many concerts performed by visiting choirs and musicians. To this is added a wide variety of other cultural events that bring people together in artistic, literary or academic endeavour.

Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to welcoming you to our chaplaincy.

Join us for a discussion with local experts on animal rights and what is right for animals. Topics include spaying and neutering your cats and dogs, how to be a responsible pet parent, volunteerism, and the problems surrounding animals in tourism/entertainment.
We invite all those who want to help teach empathy towards animals to others while learning how we, as a community, can have an impact on policy by practicing awareness in our daily lives.

Our Speakers:
Tessa Cole, an animal rights activist and the event's moderator, will be speaking about empathy towards animals and the different ways in which we can practice having empathy. This includes doing our own research, paying attention to who/what we are buying tickets/giving our money to and being more aware of the abuse and cruelty that animals suffer for tourism/entertainment.

Luigina Bassan, the President of ENPA (National Animal Protection Agency) of the San Giovanni Valdarno district, will be discussing what ENPA is and does. Along with Lia Sarchi, a Manager for the ENPA San Giovanni Valdarno district, who will be talking about what is the correct rapport between animals and humans as well as wild animals and what to do when we find wounded birds.

Maryanne Day, founder and owner of Florence Pet Sitting, will be discussing the issue of animal abandonment during the summer months and the different options pet owners have when they go on holiday, how to adopt an animal, the problem with having dogs off the leash and other community concerns.

Dottoressa Marta Brovelli, Dottoressa Silvia Porcelli and Dottoressa Serena Tacchi, veterinarians of Clinica Veterinaria Il Marzocco, who will be discussing the importance of neutering and spaying cats and dogs, the importance of vaccinations, microchipping your cat or dog, registering your pets and when the appropriate time to euthanize a sick and/or suffering animal is.
