Ministries

The various ministries of St. Mark Parish provide you with many ways to connect with our Parish Community. Our vibrant and Spirit Filled Ministries offer our parishioners a place to grow in faith, to serve others, grow as a Catholic. Here you will meet others in the Body of Christ who share your values, and be able to reach out to serve the larger parish and community. We hope there’s something for everyone here. If not, we encourage you to join us in sharing your time, talent and treasure and even creating future ministries!
