Education Commission

The mission of the Education Commission of St. Mark Catholic Church is to coordinate all levels of educational programming and spiritual growth opportunities, for all parishioners, including faith formation and sacramental preparation for Catholic and public school children.  The ultimate goal of these programs is to create disciples of Jesus Christ who, through growing in love, knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith, will live a life that will be a light to the world.

"And Jesus came and said to them, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...'" - Matthew 28:18-20
