Welcome to
ST. MARK Youth Ministry



(since August 1965)

“My Soul Rejoices in the Lord”

May we renew our commitment to imitate Mary’s profound trust and faithful obedience.





The Diocesan Youth Office is following the Diocese on the three years leading up to the Golden Jubilee in 2024. The first year “REMEMBER” started on the First Sunday of Advent (November 28, 2021) and ended on Christ the King (November 20, 2022). The second year “REJOICE” began on November 20, 2022. This second year will focus on Mary, the Mediatrix of All Grace and the Model Disciple, who shows us how to receive the Word and bear the Word to the world. The third year “RENEW” will begin on November 26, 2023 and lead into the 50th Jubilee Year of our Diocese.

Join us for these three years of Remembering our past with gratitude, Rejoicing in the current vitality of our Diocese and then Renewing and strengthening our faith for the future.


Here at ST. MARK we have lots to offer:

ST. MARK Youth Ministry offers programs for Middle School (grades 6-8), 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
