A BIBLE STUDY ON THE EUCHARIST
During this year of the Eucharist in our diocese, St. Mark's will offer a study on the Eucharist. We will begin on Monday, January 29, 2018 @ 7:15 PM in the Old Church and meet on non-consecutive Monday evenings. This study will be different from any of our previous studies in that we will use a FORMED program to guide us.
Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre rigorously digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching. We'll discover firsthand how Christ's Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God's plan for our salvation.”
If you are interested in growing in your love and understanding of the Eucharist, and growing in your relationship with Jesus, please consider joining the study. Click this link to register!

Holy Hour of Prayer
St. Mark's Church will hold a special Holy Hour with Exposition, Prayer and Benediction on January 22 at 6:30 PM for the Legal Protection of unborn children. It is simply a demand of justice that we should pray to put an end to abortion and that each and every life is respected and nurtured from the moment of conception to natural death.
Please make a commitment to join us for this special and purposeful evening.
