Reminder: This Sunday is the last day to bring in Giving Tree gifts for the Carmelite Nuns. If you took a star from the tree earlier this month, please bring your gifts to Sullivan Hall no later than this weekend. Thank you for participating in the Christmas in July program here at St. Mark! The Carmelite Sisters greatly appreciate your generosity!
There will be a funeral Mass on Tuesday, July 29th at 11 AM for parishioner Carol Monahan, mother of Hugh Monahan. Please keep her and her family and friends in your prayers.
May the angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs come to welcome you and take you to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem. May choirs of angels welcome you and lead you to the bosom of Abraham; and where Lazarus is poor no longer, may you find eternal rest. Amen
There will be a funeral Mass tomorrow morning (Friday, July 18th) at 11 AM for long-time parishioner Robert "Bob" Amundsen. Please keep him and his family and friends in your prayers.
Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Starting this weekend, it's time for Christmas in July! St. Mark Parish is committed to reaching out to those in need in our Shoreline community! The first way you can help is by participating in the Christmas in July Giving Tree program which benefits the Carmelite Nuns. The Carmelites have an amazing ministry of prayer and we are honored to help them fulfill this ministry by providing them with food, household, and personal items twice a year. Please be generous in your support by taking stars from the Giving Tree, which will be in the vestibule of the Church, and returning the items to Sullivan Hall, unwrapped, by July 27th.
Also, in Sullivan Hall, there is a “Back to School” donation bin which will benefit low income students in the Shoreline area through your donations of school supplies. There are tags on the bin with lists of specific donation needs and more information will be in next weekend's bulletin. Thank you very much for your generosity!
Tonight, at 7 PM in Sullivan Hall, there will be a special program starting called "Light Weigh: One King. Real faith. Real food. Real people. Real life", which is a 12-week DVD Bible Study weight loss program created by Suzanne Fowler. This initial meeting is an informational meeting that will explain the program. If you are interested or curious, please stop by! For more information, feel free to visit the program's website via the link below.
