A People Set Apart

Diocesan Priests' Retirement Fund

Please consider our retired diocesan priests this Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. Use the envelope in your monthly packet or place your contribution in a marked envelope,(Diocesan Priests' Retirement Fund) and place in the 1st collection. What a great way to say "Thank you!...for their commitment in the service of God and for caring for the spiritual needs of our family and our children's family."

Please Don't confuse this with the national Religious' Retirement appeal each December! Our own local priests rely on your generosity to this collection to help them face their "third age" with grace and dignity. Please grace them in return with your generosity, as well as with your prayers!

St. Mark Parish was established in July of 1973, totally taken from land previously within the jurisdiction of St. Theresa Parish, in Gonzales, LA. Starting its life in a heavily wooded lot in a rural area of Ascension civil Parish in the State of Louisiana, the parish has progressed to its present beautifully landscaped property with church, rectory, administration building, many meeting rooms, a complete 23 classroom parish school of religion complex, a large activity center, and two meditation areas in our outdoor way of the cross and Marian grotto. 

The parish has grown from 600 families in its earliest days to over 2000 families today, with a total registered membership of over 6500 registered parishioners. Five pastors have served the parish during its 36 years of existence. More than 800 students now participate in the parish's religious education programs for grades K-12. Through more than 80 ministries, the parish invites all parishioners to both serve and be served, rejoicing together in a communion of life. We are the Body of Christ reaching out to the entire surrounding community with His Good News of salvation.
