Welcome to St. Mark - St. James Parish

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The commandments to love God with all one's heart and to love one's neighbor as oneself
are the heart and soul of Christian morality.
These commands point out the path toward true human fulfillment and happiness.
They are not arbitrary restrictions on human freedom.
Only active love of God and neighbor makes the fullness of community happen.
Christians look forward in hope to a true communion among all persons with each other and with God.
