Eucharistic Ministers The Eucharistic Ministers of St. Mark Parish are confirmed and registered Catholics of the parish who help with the distribution of the Eucharist. Not only do they assist at the weekend Masses by distributing Communion under both species, but they also visit the sick, the home bound, and those in the hospitals, nursing homes, and retirement communities on a regular basis. This duty does not replace the normal priestly visits, but it does make possible the more frequent reception of the Blessed Sacrament by those who cannot make it to Church. It also provides a bond of friendship for many people who have no family or friends of their own.
Lectors Lectors are members of the parish community who proclaim the scriptures at weekday and weekend liturgies and at other liturgical celebrations. Their careful preparation and reading of the scriptures is intended to communicate a sense of appreciation and respect for the Word of God.
Ushers Ushers are a visible instrument of hospitality to the whole community. Their task is to greet people in the name of the community and make them feel welcome.
Altar Servers Altar Servers of St. Mark Parish enhance the liturgies with their presence. Membership is open to boys and girls who have received the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion and must beat least in fifth grade. It is open to any member of our parish.
