NOTE:

Due to COVID, St Mark has formed a Sanitation Ministry that is responsible for implementing guidelines imposed or recommended by the CDC and local health authorities for the protection of all parishioners who assemble for masses and other events.   The Ministry is headed by Dr. Patrick Zecha.  If you would like to volunteer for this Ministry, contact the Rectory.
