AND PERSONAL PRAYER TIME:
We have the opportunity to honor Jesus by visiting the Blessed Sacrament
after Wednesday Mass 9:00am-12:30pm
At least 2 or 3 people should be present during adoration times.
We are in need of regular weekly adorers, so that others who may not be as available can stop and pray when they are available. Please prayerfully consider this special time with Jesus.
Our Diocesan televised Mass reaches nearly all households in our diocese through network programming on KSTC-45 at 11:00am each Sunday morning. Featuring local priests, musicians, and lectors, this Mass is a wonderful opportunity for our homebound parishioners to enjoy their faith with the Diocese of Saint Cloud.
St. Marcus Mission Statement
St. Marcus Church was established in 1888 as a part of the St. Cloud Diocese, by a rural group of people willing to sacrifice in order to provide for the spiritual needs of their community and future generations.
We are diverse people in search of a sense of community. We are families having a strong commitment to our history, and families looking to set our own traditions.
As a community, we will be a focal point, teach and share our faith and values with each other, and provide the opportunity for each individual to share his/her gifts.
We strive to create a warm, welcoming, supportive, and loving atmosphere united by our Eucharistic and Sacramental life in Jesus Christ. We wish to build stronger relationships with members of our Christian community.
