  • Saint of the Day 

    June 25
    Blessed Jutta of Thuringia
    (d. 1264?)
     

     

     
     
    00:00/ 01:30
    Today's patroness of Prussia began her life amidst luxury and power but died the death of a simple servant of the poor.

    In truth, virtue and piety were always of prime importance to Jutta and her husband, both of noble rank. The two were set to make a pilgrimage together to the holy places in Jerusalem, but her husband died on the way. The newly widowed Jutta, after taking care to provide for her children, resolved to live in a manner utterly pleasing to God. She disposed of the costly clothes, jewels and furniture befitting one of her rank, and became a Secular Franciscan, taking on the simple garment of a religious.

    From that point her life was utterly devoted to others: caring for the sick, particularly lepers; tending to the poor, whom she visited in their hovels; helping the crippled and blind with whom she shared her own home. Many of the townspeople of Thuringia laughed at how the once-distinguished lady now spent all her time. But Jutta saw the face of God in the poor and felt honored to render whatever services she could.

    About the year 1260, not long before her death, Jutta lived near the non-Christians in eastern Germany. There she built a small hermitage and prayed unceasingly for their conversion. She has been venerated for centuries as the special patron of Prussia.

    St. Mark Parish is a Catholic community of faith.  Our desire is to build up the Kingdom of God by sharing our gifts of time, talent and treasure with our own parishioners and with those of the larger community.  We invite everyone to join us in our many liturgical services, outreach ministries and social events.

    To build our Catholic community as One Body in Christ, many of our parishioners – and many others in the area around us – get involved in some of our many parish organizations.  These ministries provide opportunities to experience Christian learning, growth and community-building.  They focus on many areas, including:  Spiritual and Liturgical; Administrative; Christian Formation and Education; Youth; Community/World Outreach and Service; Social Groups; and Sporting Teams. 

    Our Parish Catholic School and Parish School of Religion (PSR) strive to educate our youth and to assist in their faith formation as Catholics. 

    We welcome you to St. Mark’s Parish and we invite you to visit our very active and very, blessed faith- based  community.  We invite you to grow with us in faith and service.
