WE ARE ONE STRONG FAMILY

UNITED IN CHRIST

Following the counsel of our Archdiocese, St. Mark's will resume public Mass in a limited capacity beginning Thursday, May 28. Please read this page carefully, as it includes several important updates.

PUBLIC DAILY MASS

Daily Mass is offered at St. Mark's at the following times:

Monday at 8 AM,

Tuesday - Friday at 8 AM and 11 AM

Saturday at 8 AM

Public health recommendations require that we hold Masses at 25% capacity, that those attending the Mass maintain social distancing, and that all pews are thoroughly cleaned following the Mass. To help accomplish these goals, we ask that those who wish to attend Daily Mass first sign up by using the link below.

PUBLIC SUNDAY MASS

Sunday Mass is offered at St. Mark's at the following times:

Saturday at 5 PM,

Sunday at 9 AM, 11:30 AM, and 5 PM

Public health recommendations require that we hold Masses at 25% capacity, that those attending the Mass maintain social distancing, and that all pews are thoroughly cleaned following the Mass. To help accomplish these goals, we ask that those who wish to attend Sunday Mass first sign up by using the link below. You can also use this link to volunteer to help clean the church, or to serve as an usher.

Sign up here.

Wearing a face mask is strongly encouraged for all members of our Parish Family over 2 years old. We'll have sanitizer available in the Church, though you are welcome to bring your own. We will refrain from congregational singing.

 

Please note that the Sunday obligation remains suspended. If the prospect of attending a large Mass makes you nervous, consider attending a Daily Mass, which typically see smaller congregations. If you feel attending Mass might put you or others at risk, please stay home. We will continue to stream our 9 AM Sunday Mass.

HOLY COMMUNION

The distribution of Holy Communion will occur after each Mass. Those distributing Our Lord in the Eucharist will wear face masks, and will sanitize their hands before and after  distributing Communion, as well as any time they come into direct contact with another person.

 

Ushers will guide those receiving the Eucharist, and will help make sure that those receiving Communion maintain safe social distancing. Please consider receiving Communion in the hand.

 

If you are unable to attend Mass because of health concerns, you will still be able to receive Our Lord. Send an email to eucharist@onestrongfamily.org, or call 651-504-5406 to schedule a private appointment.

CONFESSION

We intend to offer the Sacrament of Confession on Saturdays from 3:30 - 5:00 PM, and on Sundays at 8:30 AM, 11:00 AM, and 4:30 AM. Enter in the south doors of the Church. We will form two lines of no more than five people, and we will keep a distance of well over six feet between those in line.

 

Confessions will be held in the Community Room and in the Bridal Room. Public health guidelines require that all foot traffic move in one direction, so even if you intend to return to the Church following Confession, we ask that you exit the Church and re-enter through the south doors.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

Eucharistic Adoration will return to the adoration chapel, from 9 AM to 8 PM, Monday - Friday. The Blessed Sacrament will be reposed during the 11 AM Mass on Tuesday - Friday.

 

The door nearest the chapel will be open (northeast corner of the church on Moore). Please spread out as much as possible--leave at least 6 feet between you and any fellow adorers, and respect any posted instructions. Our parish-wide Adorations on Thursday evening remain suspended.

We strongly encourage adorers to wear face masks.
