Hopefully you have noticed the beautiful new addition of candle holders on either side of the Tabernacle, on the altar of repose (the altar which holds the Tabernacle). These have been graciously donated to St. Mark Parish Community by Deacon Joe and Candace McGraw in loving memory of their beloved son, Luke. The candles inserted in the new holders will be memorial candles and will burn perpetually in memory of Luke until the 1st of the Year. Then if you so choose, you may make an offering for the 2 candles which will be lit for the weekend Masses and burn for seven days in honor of your intention. To cover the cost of both candle inserts we are asking for a donation of $6.00. Please stop in at the Parish Office to schedule your candle intention. There will be an area in the bulletin where the weekly memorial intention will be listed. Please consider remembering a deceased loved one or a special intention by offering the weekly candle intention.
Blood Pressure Screening is done monthly on the second Sunday of the month, in the back vestibule of the Church, by our caring Parishioners. We are very grateful for their health care work. More help is needed to take blood pressures and to schedule and call the volunteer workers. Please call the Parish Office at 216-226-7577 if you are interested in helping.
