Parish Life
"I am the vine and you are the branches"



Parish Life represents the kingly or governing ministry of the church. Our ministry brings the parish together through fellowship and various festivities. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 in the Conference Room.

Parish Life plans annual ongoing events during the year such as the St. Mark Parish Picnic or Harvest Festival, Father’s Ordination Anniversary, Lenten Soup Suppers, the Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Vigil Reception and supports “ministries helping ministries” to promote fellowship and family participation.
