Looking for some good New Year’s Resolutions?
Here are four suggestions from Fr. Todd.


Cursillo Weekend: The word “Cursillo” stands for “A Short Course in Christianity.” During a three day retreat experience participants reflect on the basics of Christianity and the demands of discipleship. Cursillo Weekends are a great way to jump start a person’s spiritual life. Cursillo offers a method of  continuing the experience of spiritual renewal long after the weekend is past. Brochures with more information are available in the narthex of the church.


E6 Men’s Conference: Taken from Ephesians, Chapter 6, in which Saint Paul tells the men of Ephesus to put on the “Armor of God”, the E6 Men’s Conference offers Catholic men of all ages the opportunity to gather to hear inspiring speakers, spend time in Eucharistic Adoration, celebrate Mass and experience the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The 2017 E6 Conference will feature Catholic apologist Patrick Madrid, clinical psychologist Dr. Ray Guarendi and NFL great Anthony Munoz. The conference is held at the East Central High School Performing Arts Center in Saint Leon, Indiana, Saturday, March 4, 2017, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. For additional information or to  register online go to: www.e6catholicmensconference.com.

Small Church Communities: Christianity is a not a solo sport. It is meant to be lived and shared within a community. That community is the larger community of the parish, which is broken into many smaller communities. Among these communities are St. Mark’s Small Church Communities. Made up of six to twelve members, communities gather for prayer, reflection and fellowship on a regular basis. The communities are places where faith is shared and parishioners are known and loved. For information about small Church Communities, please contact Rita East at rfeast@1007@gmail.com.


Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME): Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House in Indianapolis will host a Marriage Encounter Weekend April 28-30, 2017. The weekends offer couples the opportunity to step back from busy schedules and take stock of the gift of married life. Married couples go home from a Marriage Encounter Weekend more in love with each other than ever! Why not give your spouse the gift of a Marriage Encounter Weekend in 2017? Visit www.wwme.org
for additional information or to register for the weekend.

Connected In The Spirit

The Connected in the Spirit  planning process that the parishes of the four Indianapolis deaneries have recently completed calls on each parish to determine the number of Masses that are truly needed in each parish to meet the needs of the parish community.  We are privileged to host four Masses each weekend at St. Mark. Our parish church comfortably seats 500 people.   In a community of 1100 households each of our Masses should be filled.  May we reflect on our priorities and make sure that Sunday Mass is given the importance and the place it deserves in our lives.  May we never become ‘unglued!”

See you at Mass!
