Faith Formation at the Church of Saint Mark introduces and deepens our understanding of the Sacraments, God's Word and Tradition, our place in God's community of the Church and His calling for us to live and share the Faith.


Formation programs are tailored for various age-groups and seek to incorporate the Archdiocese's Goals for Catholic Education: Knowledge of the Faith, Liturgical Education, Moral Formation, Teaching to Pray, Community Life, and Missionary Initiative.
