45th Jubilee


We have entered our 45th year of parish life at St. Mark. To commemorate this we will have a number of things to encourage our spiritual growth. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed in the Church from 6:30 - 7:30 PM beginning August 2017 to July 2018 on all first Fridays. Songs, readings and reflections will also be offered. (The Adoration Chapel will be closed from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on those days).
We will also have special weekends every quarter with solemn celebrations of the Eucharist to give thanks & praise to God for all His blessings for the last 45 years. A special anointing will be offered to those who are sick and those who are getting ready for surgery during those months. All of you are invited; please join in as many of these events as possible.
