BECAUSE YOU ASKED
(The following are responses to questions placed in the Pastoral Council question/comment box in the Parish Lobby)

Please remind Eucharistic Ministers that skirt length should be appropriately modest.
St. Mark’s Church s train Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist to dress appropriately and reverently for the dignity of the task. Tank tops and shorts are never acceptable on the altar. Training and refresher materials are online at the Parish web site under the left menu section, “Liturgy Schedule and Guide”. Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist are periodically required to attend training to ensure they maintain a current understanding of their responsibilities and appropriate dress.
Turn on Mikes so we can hear. Some of us do not hear well to begin with.
Microphones sometimes fun out or battery power or simply malfunction during the celebration of the Mass. We will remind Father Steve, our Deacons and visiting Celebrants to do their best to make sure they are in working order before Mass begins and to the AMBO when all else fails. On a related note, there are listening devices, for use by anyone in need of hearing assistance, in the back of the church. Please ask the ushers if you need assistance in locating them.
