  •     2015 MARCH FOR                   LIFE

    This year the parish sent 54 young people and chaperones to Washington DC to participate in the March for Life.  They prayed for the unborn and they witnessed to the sanctity of all human life. They also enjoyed visiting various monuments and museums in our nations capital. The parish is very proud of our young people for standing up for life and grateful for the chaperones who accompanied them.

    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.
  • Saint of the Day

    March 6
    St. Mary Ann of Jesus of Paredes
    (1614-1645)

    Mary Ann grew close to God and his people during her short life.

    The youngest of eight, Mary Ann was born in Quito, Ecuador, which had been brought under Spanish control in 1534. She joined the Secular Franciscans and led a life of prayer and penance at home, leaving her parents’ house only to go to church and to perform some work of charity. She established in Quito a clinic and a school for Africans and indigenous Americans. When a plague broke out, she nursed the sick and died shortly thereafter.

    She was canonized by Pope Pius XII in 1950.
