What Do Catholics Believe?

The following is intended to be a primer of Catholic belief. It is the hope that visitors to our website will join us at St. Mark to dive deeper into their faith and journey towards a more perfect union with Jesus Christ. For adults, see our page on adult education programs (click here). For youth, we have a variety of programs for youth ministry and faith formation. If you are interested in becoming Catholic, do not hesitate to contact us about becoming Catholic through the Rites of Christian Initiation for Adults.
