Small Faith Groups Ministry Sign-Ups 

Are you interested in a way to grow in your understanding of faith and how the scripture connects to your personal life?
The St. Mark Pastoral Council is ready to launch a new Small Group Faith Sharing Ministry that will provide opportunities for adults to connect their love of God with their current station in life in a new and deeper way, while strengthening bonds among parishioners.

Sign-up Sheets will be located at the main entrance/exit to church for weekend Masses of September 25/26.

A Pastoral Council Member will be present at each Mass to help answer questions you may have.

DAILY ADORATION at the Chapel from 9am to 5pm Resuming Soon!  

Sign-up sheet for Adorers available at all Sunday masses.
We need adorers especially mid-day.
 

What is Adoration? 

The Blessed Sacrament is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.  When the Blessed Sacrament is exposed or displayed in the Tabernacle, we must remember that Jesus is tangibly present and we are called to respond with adoration.
Adoration requires listening and being completely present to Jesus Christ.  

SAINT JOSEPH’S CORNER – REFLECTION

Consider that the entire life of Saint Joseph was interior and hidden in God; so little known to the world that but a few holy writers mention him in a few places; and of his death give no information. His was a life of prayer, quiet work and constant sacrifice and at the same time, a life shining with the splendor of all virtues” St Joseph Sebastian Pelczar

The Year of St Joseph Prayer

To you, O blessed Joseph (Ad te, beate Ioseph)

To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our afflictions, and having implored the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.

Through that charity which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood, and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.

O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector, be kind to us and from heaven assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness.

As once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity; shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may be able to live piously, to die in holiness, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen

Saint Mark Social Justice Prayer

Heavenly Father,

We graciously ask You to pour out Your spirit on our parish and fill us with Your grace to be instruments of peace and charity to all those whom You place in our path who are less fortunate, defenseless, marginalized, or forgotten:

May we recognize You in everyone we meet, whether stranger or neighbor, no matter their race or nationality, no matter their age or economic status, no matter their physical or mental condition, no matter their circumstances.

May we know the homeless as our brethren and be generous with our material blessings, our gifts, and our hearts.

May we see Your reflection in the poor and be moved to action and empathy.

May we demonstrate Your mercy toward the incarcerated by works of faith and fellowship through cooperation with the Holy Spirit.

May we advocate in Your name for the unborn, the elderly, and the most vulnerable.

May the troubled, the sick, and the disabled know comfort and experience Your love through our assistance and care.

May we recognize and challenge racial injustice wherever it exists.

May we welcome all immigrants and refugees as Your children and support their integration into our society, as we see the value of all who seek to be our neighbors.

May we provide assistance from our abundance to those challenged by unemployment and financial stress, and fight for policies that uphold the rights to dignified work and a living wage.

Through the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary we pray.  Amen.
