and I want other kids to have the same opportunity.”
From Sarah, “Influence the people younger than me to follow in
Christ’s footsteps.”
From Lydia, “…I want to show and help others learn about their

Celebración del 50 Aniversario de St. Mark
April 25, 2016 marks the 50 Anniversary date of St. Mark the
Evangelist Catholic Church. For the next year up to the Anniversary date, we have many activities planned for our
Parish to celebrate this milestone.
El 25 de abril de 2016 celebramos el 50 Aniversario de St.
Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church. Para el próximo año
hasta esa fecha, tenemos planeadas muchas
actividades para esta celebración.
We began our celebration back in April with the project
of a new St. Mark Directory. This new Directory will provide pictures and up-to-date contact information for our
parishioners. It also serves as a successful fundraiser for
our celebration. The month of October has been designated for the Youth of our Parish and School. They will
be joining forces to participate in several celebration
activities and Masses. We will be celebrating with our
past Clergy a special Mass on January 29, 2016 followed
by an all Parish reception. Our numerous choirs within
the Parish will be performing before, during and after the
Mass. A Parish-wide Fellowship dinner is being planned the
weekend before our actual Anniversary date. Our year-long
celebration concludes with his Excellency Bishop Kevin Farrell
celebrating Mass at St. Mark on April 25, 2016 with a reception
to follow.
Empezamos nuestra celebración en abril con el
proyecto del nuevo directorio de St. Mark, que
incluye fotografías e información actualizadas
para nuestros feligreses. Esto también ha sido
una buena y exitosa recaudación de fondos para
nuestro festejo. El mes de octubre está
designado para la juventud y escuela parroquial,
que unidos, participarán en varias misas y
actividades celebratorias. El 26 de enero de
2016 se celebrará una misa y recepción especial
honrando a los sacerdotes que fueron parte de St. Mark,
anteriormente y escucharemos a los varios coros parroquiales
durante y después de la misa. También se está planeando un
convivió o cena parroquial para el fin de semana antes de la
fecha actual del aniversario.
En boletines futuros presentaremos a los numerosos ministerios parroquiales y organizaciones asociadas con nuestra
We will also be featuring the numerous ministry groups within

Parish, in our upcoming Bulletins.
Desde su humilde principio en un centro comunitario, hasta
