St Mark Angels purchased, or donated funds to help purchase over 200 gifts for these special children. A team of twelve individuals wrapped each gift, labeled them, sorted them by family and then bagged them for distribution. All gifts were picked up by grateful family members. Without your help, none of this would have been possible. Thank you Angels, Office Staff and volunteers. The St Mark Parish Family is outstanding!!! St Mark Knights of Columbus Council #13491

              1. Message from Peace & Justice: Corporal Works of Mercy Clothe the Naked In this Corporal Work of Mercy, Jesus calls us to do something… to really and truly clothe the naked. Jesus says that when we clothe the naked we are clothing him. What if your brother didn’t have a coat to keep him warm this winter?  What if your sister didn’t have a blanket to wrap around herself to stay warm?  Right now many of our brothers and sisters are out there without the means to satisfy a legitimate need. Over the next few weeks, from January 11th through February 2nd, the Peace and Justice ministry of St. Mark Parish is reaching out to each of you to search your homes for gently used coats and blankets and to donate them to our Annual Coat and Blanket Drive. Please place your donations in the Box located in the Narthex.  This drive helps support Sharing and Caring and the needs of those in our community who have less than we.
