On behalf of Father Ben Uhlenkott, Father Vitalis Onyeama, our deacons and parish staff, we welcome you to St. Mark’s and invite you to engage in the life of this vibrant Catholic Community.
It was just 40 years ago that a couple of hundred parishioners founded St. Mark’s School and parish at the corner of Cole and Northview in Boise, Idaho. Today it is home to over 1,000 families and 60+ ministries and groups. Our campus today includes a beautiful church that seats 1700 for Mass, a perpetual Eucharistic adoration chapel, an esteemed Catholic school for Pre-K through Grade 8, The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a sought after early childhood faith formation program, and a food bank which feeds over 26,000 hungry people each year. There is something for everyone here- meaningful ways to serve, to pray, to worship, to learn and to grow in fellowship and friendship.
As we look back with gratitude, let us look forward to a growing, welcoming parish family that continuously encounters the love of God which we joyfully share.
