St. Mark Emporium Church


Welcome to St. Mark - St. James Parish





January 10
Baptism of The Lord 




Connecting the Gospel to the Christmas Season...
Our celebration of
Christmas does not end with the infant Jesus, but with the adult Jesus
being baptized and beginning his saving mission. We who have been baptized with his Spirit take up his work of salvation
during Ordinary Time, continuing his mission of bringing the Good News to others.

This is what John the Baptist proclaimed, "One mightier than I is coming after me.  I am not worthy to stoop and loosen the thongs of his sandals. I have baptized you with water.  He will baptize you with The Holy Spirit."  Mk 1-7:8
