Greetings It's hard to describe what makes a parish. There are so many facets to a church that it would be difficult to compose a complete list. In fact, words cannot completely describe what St. Mark/St. James or any worshipping community truly contains.

We have wonderful parishishes and we are proud of the great body of people, as well as the wonderful facility in which we gather in the name of the Lord.

It is a blessing to serve as Pastor here at St. Mark and St. James. May God's blessings always be with you.

Fr. Paul
Pastoral Vision
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.
