Welcome to
St. Mark Youth Ministry

 

“Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. REJOICE and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven.”

St. Mark Youth Ministry offers programs for Jr. High (grades 7-8), High School (grades 9-12), and College-aged (ages 18-22) youth.

Youth Ministry strives to help the parish become a “Church for young people, which will know how to speak to their heart, en-kindle, comfort, and inspire enthusiasm in it with the joy of the Gospel and the strength of the Eucharist; a Church which will know how to invite and to welcome the person who seeks a purpose for which to commit his whole existence; a Church which is not afraid to require much, after having given much; which does not fear asking from young people the effort of a noble and authentic adventure, such as that of following of the Gospel.”

–St. John Paul the Great, 1995 World Day of Prayer for Vocations

The annual theme artwork is meant to depict that we are called to “Rejoice!” even in the midst of darkness. Throughout times of sorrow, the bright light of Jesus Christ springs forth in all directions. Pope Francis asked that his reflections “be crowned by Mary, because she lived the Beatitudes of Jesus as none other.” The twelve stars in the logo are meant to symbolize Mary’s crown as described in Revelations 12:1.
