A wayfaring virgin
        divine Word in her womb,
is coming your way,
        if you only have room.

Welcome to Advent! The Advent season is a four-Sunday period of reflection and preparation for Christmas. Our calendar is full of events this month.

Collecting for Our Community Food Center

["I was hungry and you gave me food."]We collect non-perishable food and household supplies for our community food bank, St. Mark's Food Center. We can leave them in the large basket outside the pastor's office.

In December, the Food Center is especially looking for spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, and packages of macaroni and cheese.

St. Mark’s Food Center will gratefully accept the following nonperishable items: breakfast cereals (especially cereals that are kid-friendly), white or brown rice, soups, canned chicken and tuna, peanut butter, canned vegetables, pancake mix (just-add-water variety) and syrup, applesauce and fruit cups, enriched pasta, condiments (ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise), coffee, toothpaste, bar bath soap, diapers, sanitary napkins, and 2-ply toilet paper.
