Patron Saint Feast Day Celebrations at St. Mark’s
Starting April 17th
Please join as a community in praying the:
Novena Prayer To St. Mark The Evangelist
O glorious St Mark, through the grace of God our Father, you became a great Evangelist, preaching the Good News of Christ. Obtain for me I pray, lively faith, firm hope and burning love; patience in adversity, humility in prosperity, recollection in prayer, purity of heart, a right intention in all my works, diligence in fulfilling the duties of my state of life, constancy in my resolutions, resignation to the will of God and perseverance in the grace of God even unto death, and, by your intercession and your glorious merits I entrust to you this special favour I now ask (mention your request). I ask this through Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
(One ‘Our Father’)
Pray the prayer each day beginning April 17th and concluding on the Feast of St. Mark, April 25th.
“How will you respond to the Pope’s invitation to renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ?”
To help answer this question, and to celebrate our parish’s patron, St. Mark, Sister Gertrude Feick, OSB, will present: “The Joy of Living: Evangelization & the Gospel of St. Mark” on April 25th, following the 5 pm Mass, St. Mark’s Courtyard.
Sister Gertrude is a Benedictine Sister of Mt. Angel, Oregon. She is currently working on a Doctorate in Sacred Theology at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, Italy. She also plays the organ, volunteers at a local health care center, gives lectures and retreats, and enjoys reading novels, doing counted cross stitch and keeping fit.
