~ St. Mark Parish Vision Statement ~
The St. Mark Parish family works together to lead all people to
the Kingdom of God. Our St. Mark Catholic community is a
welcoming place where people come together to worship,
serve and socialize with a message of hope and salvation.
We minister to the diverse cultures and ages that make up
our parish family and the wider community. We foster
an open and vibrant community of faith, inspired by Jesus
and rooted in the gospel. The ministry of our parish family
includes all aspects of life – body, mind and spirit –and embraces
everyone. Our outreach program to the poor and needy
is a nurturing one that addresses the whole person:
to live out the call for the preferential option for the poor.
We envision the youth of today as leaders of tomorrow and
we commit to their spiritual and social development.
Faith Formation is a responsibility of all parish members and
is demonstrated by the way we worship and model the
message of Jesus. We respect and listen to all voices.
We rejoice in welcoming new members
and returning members
