Dear parishioners,

As we are all called to care for those who are in need, specifically, as we have been talking about these last number of weeks about the persecution of Christians in Iraq and the children at the border here in the United States, here are a few websites to help you in your prayers and desire to help those in need.

St. Mark’s New Youth Minister

It is with great joy I welcome Sean Forrest and family (wife Julie, kids Liam, Erin, and Hannah) to St Mark’s! Sean will be our new youth minister beginning midsummer.

Sean has been a youth minister for several years before going out on the retreat circuit in the New England area and starting his own mission, viz. www.Haiti180.com. He is a nationally known speaker and retreat director, giving many talks at Steubenville conferences and lately our own ICYC this year!

You can check more out about Sean: www.seanforrest.com

To the Forrest family, on behalf of the parish, WELCOME!
