St. Mark's Catholic Community

Let us know you are interested in being a part of a small faith group

Small Faith Group


"A welcoming, growing Catholic family that continuously experiences and joyfully shares the love of God."
As members of His Body, we come together and are transformed through the Word of God, the Mass, the Sacraments, and prayer. We go forth into the world sharing the Love of Christ.
