The mission of St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to all God's people by word and action.
St. Mark ACTS Core is ecstatic to announce that retreats are being planned for 2023! It has been a long time coming and we couldn’t be happier. ACTS retreats have been an integral part in the growth of fellowship and the feeling of community at St. Mark since 2001. Our retreat schedule was interrupted by COVID, but all is good and we invite you to enjoy the camaraderie and spiritual enrichment that many of us have experienced while on retreat.
Here is the ACTS retreat schedule for 2023:
June 15-18: Men in Recovery
June 29-July 2: Men
July 13-16: Men (Spanish)
July 13-16: Teen ACTS – Disciple Oaks, Gonzales TX

All adult retreats will be held at the Cordi Marian Retreat Center, San Antonio.
ACTS is an acronym meaning Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. The retreats are organized and conducted by your fellow parishioners and take place over a three day period. The retreat weekends are fun, interactive and spiritually fulfilling.
