Art & Environment
The importance of the liturgical environment is vital to good liturgy. This team plans and prepares the sacred space for the different liturgical seasons. The team is a group of gifted and talented people who are willing to understand the importance of environment and how it calls us to prayer. We do this as we move through the liturgical seasons of the year with art and environment that call us to prayer.

The Women’s Guild, formerly known as the Altar Society, was established at St. Mark in 1976. It is an active ministry of women ages 18 and over.
The objectives of the guild are: to assist the pastor under his direction, care for the altar linens used for worship services and to plan and prepare the sacred spaces for liturgical seasons; to promote spiritual growth among its members; and to support religious, civic and educational programs. Throughout the year we hold 10 monthly meetings. Various committees organize fundraising events such as bake sales, a used book sale, craft fair and trash & treasure sales to support our objectives. The Women’s Guild lead the Rosary monthly before the third Saturday evening Mass and hold an annual retreat for all women of the parish.

Caring & Sharing
One of the many ministries at St. Mark's is known as Caring & Sharing. The name is very appropriate. Because of the community it serves, not many of our parishioners are aware of what this ministry is all about until the need arises. This ministry serves the community of St. Mark's by providing a meal for family and friends on the day of a funeral of a deceased member.
