Many Catholics have stopped participating in the source and summit of our faith, the celebration of the Eucharist (Mass). Some have understandably stayed distant due to health concerns, others due to the busyness of life or, more to the point, a lack of understanding of the true presence Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. To encourage a return to Mass and engagement in a Eucharistic life, St. Mark's is participating in a CONSECRATION TO THE EUCHARIST. The Consecration began September 20th and will conclude June 6th, Corpus Christi Sunday.

  • FAQ

      • The busyness of our lives today was one of the motivating factors for our Consecration to the Eucharist pastoral year. We all need to take and make time for Jesus.
