PRAYER SHAWLS STILL NEEDED
Many thanks to all who made prayer shawls. They are all so beautiful and unique! Recipients of the shawls feel loved and appreciated, but more shawls are needed. If you can help please call June @ 486-1745 or Pat Martin @ 486-1990. Monetary donations to help defray the cost may be marked “prayer shawl” and dropped in the collection basket. Thank you.
If you would like to help with this project and need a pattern, please call June or Pat at the numbers listed above.

St. Mark and St. James Parish glorify and model the life of Jesus Christ on our spiritual journey to salvation bringing the community to greater holiness through participation in the sacramental life with a willingness to share time, talent, and treasure.
P A S T O R A L V I S I O N
We at St. Mark/St. James glorify Jesus Christ as we..
- Pursue full and active participation rather than presume regular faith practice of our members.
- React to the changing conditions of the local Catholic Community.
- Strive first and foremost for Spiritual renewal in every committee, organization, or activity.
- Build belonging for the various age groups, personalities, genders, and states of life.
- Invite the occasional and nominal back to their spiritual home.
- Serve the needs of the greater community.
