ADVENT GIVING 

Join with our St. Mark family to support the annual parish ADVENT GIVING Outreach. This year during the pandemic more than ever so many are in need of our support and prayers. This outreach benefits families served by our local St. Vincent de Paul Conference and Catholic Worker House, Redwood City for in-need youth. 

You can participate in the true meaning of Advent by purchasing a $25 Target gift card – online, in-store or at local retailers with gift card kiosks. If easier to donate, send $25 in cash or by check and we will purchase the gift cards on your behalf.  (If you send a check, please make it out to St. Mark Ladies Guild).

It is important to return your donation in an envelope marked – Advent Giving on the outside – and designating which group you are donating to.  This will enable us to keep them separate.

Donations may be returned as follows: 

* Bring your donation of either a gift card or money to the mass you attend and place it.    in one of the clearly marked baskets for Advent Giving at entrance or exit doors. 
* Drop off when you come to receive Communion.  There will be baskets available.
* Mail – St. Mark, 325 Marine View, Belmont, CA 94002 
(Again, please mark Advent Giving and your designation on the outside).

We will collect the weekends of November 29 through December 13, 2020. 

Your gift card donation will be included with a Christmas greeting and prayer intention.

Saint Vincent de Paul

Saint Mark conference of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul wishes to provide our fellow parishioners with a quick update.  Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to visit and assist our neighbors in need.  As is expected during a dual health and financial crisis, calls for help have increased.  Your continued generous support of SVDP enables us to meet those calls so that families remain housed and fed, and children continue to grow and learn.  In Jesus’s name, we thank you for supporting our mission! Now Thanksgiving and Christmas approach.  

In the past, we enjoyed the participation of the entire parish, as you provided “fixings” bags for Thanksgiving and joined our visits to our neighbor’s homes.  We are sorry to say that this will not be possible as long as the pandemic endures.  Nevertheless, the SVDP Conference will visit our neighbors this Advent, bringing gift cards and other expressions of our love for God’s people.  Our partners in the Ladies Guild are coordinating the gift card donations .

November Plenary Indulgences for Souls in Purgatory

sfarch.org/indulgences

The Vatican has announced an extension to the plenary indulgences traditionally obtained during the first week of November. Because of restrictions on cemetery visits due to COVID-19, “the Plenary Indulgence applicable to the deceased by those who visit a cemetery has been extended beyond the normal dates of 1 to 8 November. This year, the indulgence can be obtained by anyone who visits a cemetery, even if only mentally, on any day in November, and devoutly prays for the faithful departed.”

The Vatican has announced an extension to the plenary indulgences traditionally obtained during the first week of November.

This year, the indulgence can be obtained by anyone who visits a cemetery, even if only mentally, on any day in November, and devoutly prays for the faithful departed.”

To obtain an indulgence, one must be a Catholic in the state of grace and free from all attachment to sin, even venial sin. In addition to this pious act, it is necessary to fulfill the following three conditions in order to gain the indulgence:

  • sacramental confession,
  • Eucharistic Communion,
  • and prayer for the intention of the Pope (this can be satisfied by reciting one Our Father and one Hail Mary, or any other prayer for the intention of the Roman Pontiff).
