Lone Rose Sunday
This Weekend
The Knights of Columbus annual appeal for donations to the White Rose and Birth Choice Crisis Pregnancy Centers will be after all Masses this weekend. Please donate generously to this very worthwhile
cause. The White Rose and Birth Choice crisis pregnancy ministries exist solely on donations and provide life-saving assistance at a critical time in a mother’s and child’s life. Members of the Knights of
Columbus will be in the Narthex to accept your monetary donations. (All checks should be made payable to The Knights of Columbus Council 6065). In addition to the money collected, a baby crib will be
setup in the Bethany Narthex to accept new baby supplies, and gently used infant clothing and
baby furniture for the White Rose and Birth Choice Centers.
Both centers provide free pregnancy testing, counseling, medical assistance, cribs, car seats, clothing, strollers, and other baby
items, as well as some financial aid. Sonograms are provided on a case-by-case basis. All items are donated and are freely dispensed.
The White Rose center has been open for 30 years. The Birth Choice center was established 7 years ago at the direction of Bishop
Farrell who wants a crisis pregnancy center located near every abortion clinic. Together the centers serve over 3,000 women
annually, including hundreds who turn from the very doorsteps of the abortion clinics in search of a brighter alternative.
St. Mark parishioners have always been among the strongest supporters in the Dallas Diocese of the White Rose Center as
evidenced by our annual Lone Rose Sunday collection, K of C Golf Tournament and other events, sidewalk counselors, etc. When
the Birth Choice center was opened, we expanded our support to the White Rose and the Birth Choice centers equally.
Holy Doors IN St. Mark
The ritual opening of the Holy Door of Mercy in
the Basilica of St. Peter on December 8, 2015,
marked the official start of the extraordinary
Jubilee Year of Mercy. From that moment, in
every Catholic Church in every diocese, the faithful are called to celebrate and live the Jubilee,
particularly through the liturgy and reconciliation. Our personal invitation from Pope Francis is abundantly
clear - each Catholic faithful is to make a pilgrimage to the ‘Holy
Door’ as a sign of one’s deepest desire to true spiritual conversion. Conveniently so, our Church will have our confessional holy
doors invitingly open and we should prepare ourselves through
reflective prayer so we can journey with genuine pardon,
strength and devotion.

Puertas Santas en St. Mark
La apertura ritual de la Puerta Santa de la
Misericordia en la Basílica de San Pedro el 8
de diciembre de 2015, marcó el inicio oficial
del año extraordinario del Jubileo de Misericordia. Desde ese momento, en cada iglesia
católica en cada diócesis, los fieles son llamados a celebrar y vivir el Jubileo, particularmente a través de la liturgia y la reconciliación. Nuestra invitación personal del Papa
Francisco es abundantemente clara: cada fiel católico debe hacer
una peregrinación a la “Puerta Santa” como muestra de su más
profundo deseo de conversión espiritual verdadera. Convenientemente, las puertas de los confesionarios en St. Mark son nuestras puertas de Misericordia. Están bendecidas y debemos prepáranos mediante oración y reflexión para continuar nuestra
jornada de perdón genuino, fuerza y devoción.
$20 per individual /$25 per couple, includes
book and refreshments. All proceeds go to the
White Rose and Birth Choice Centers.
Sponsors: Knights of Columbus Council #6065

donating, please call Charity Motors Car Donation

Home for the holidays. We are all familiar with that wonderful song. One marvelous group that makes this wish come true here in
Plano is Habitat for Humanity. HfH builds homes and communities in which families can grow and flourish.
Did you know that HfH does not give away houses?
-Each family that applies for a HfH house is thoroughly screened before being approved for a house. This truly is a “Hand Up, not a
Hand Out.” Families commit to participate in the build, providing 400 hours of their own “Sweat Equity”. In addition, they must pay
back an interest free mortgage, pay property taxes and maintain the home and yard. Financial and home management skills training
are also provided and required before final approval.
Last spring St Mark’s formed a “Habitat Team” within our parish. You may have seen some of our members at the Parish Festival
encouraging children and even adults to “drive a nail for habitat”.
In order to plan our next steps the St Mark team, and all those in the parish with an interest in helping the HfH mission, will be
having a meeting on Tuesday January 19, 2016, at 7:30 PM in the parish library. We will consider fundraising options, plans will be
discussed and decisions made about how to raise funds and build a St Mark sponsored house. Your experience and perspective is
important and welcome.
If you are interested in being a part of the St Mark HfH team or need more information contact Frank McElligott at 972-867-8516
