Looking for some good New Year’s Resolutions?
Here are some 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.


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.

Prayer for a new Archbishop

Because Cardinal Tobin has now been installed as the Archbishop of Newark, we are in a time of prayer and anticipation of the appointment of our next ordinary. As we give thanks for his faith service, we also pray for the appointment of our next ordinary, At the request of Msgr. Stumpf, the Archdiocesan Administrator, all the faithful are encouraged to offer prayers that God may bless us soon with anew archbishop for the Church in Central and Southern Indiana. 

O God, you are our eternal shepherd and guide. In your mercy, grant to the Archdiocese of Indianapolis a shepherd who will walk in your ways and whose watchful care will bring us your blessing. In your love for us, give us the joy of receiving an archbishop who will be an example of goodness to your people and who will fill our hearts and minds with the truth of the Gospel.


Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. AMEN.

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!
