Following the counsel of our Archdiocese and local and national health experts, the Church of St. Mark is making the following temporary changes to our schedule. This is a developing situation, and it requires no shortage of creativity and patience. Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome any suggestions from our Parish family. Pray always, friends.
Until further notice, public Mass is temporarily suspended at the Church of St. Mark. We will live stream Mass at 7 AM, Monday - Saturday. We will live-stream Sunday Mass at 9 AM. If you miss the live stream, footage from the Mass will still be available. Watch here: https://www.facebook.com/Churchofsaintmark/
Due to some very real health risks, we are temporarily unable to offer Holy Communion at this time. We know this is painful news to our entire parish family. The Archbishop intends to revisit this as the situation develops. We encourage you to receive spiritual communion. Here is a good resource on Spiritual Communion.
We intend to offer the Sacrament of Confession on Saturdays from 3:30 - 5:00 PM, and on Sundays from 10 AM - 12 Noon. Enter in the south doors of the Church. We will form lines of no more than 10 people, and we will keep a distance of over 6 feet between those in line. Confessions will be held in the Sacristy and in the Chapel. We want to make this Sacrament available to as many as we can. Please respect this intention and make your Confessions as concise as possible.
Going forward, Eucharistic Adoration will be offered in the Church, not the adoration chapel, from 8 AM to 8 PM, Monday - 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. Please limit the number of adorers present to 10. Our parish-wide Adorations on Thursday evening are cancelled.
Stations of the Cross
We’re suspending public Stations of the Cross for the remainder of Lent. We will post a video every Friday evening. Watch here:
The Parish Office will be closed to visitors during this time, though we’re still operating during our normal business hours. We are open from 9 AM - 3 PM, Monday - Thursday, and on Friday from 9 AM - 12 PM. Our phone number is (651) 645-5717. You can email our front office at email@example.com.
