St. Mark's Religious Education
St. Mark the Evangelist has embraced the Generations of Faith model of religious education. All members of the parish family are invited and welcomed to monthly festivals of learning. Dinner is served to our guests while discussion, centered on the theme, is encouraged. Through the creative arts such as music, drama and storytelling, the theme is further developed.

This year our Generations of Faith theme is an exploration of the Gospel of John. Through the stories in John we encounter Jesus. We read of His power to heal and save us. We realize that Jesus’ journey takes Him from the Bethlehem crib to the Jerusalem cross. His life is our gift of forgiveness and salvation.
We hope that you will join us for fellowship, prayer, and discussion. Come and grow your faith knowledge while strengthening our Catholic community.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and Children's Catechumenate is the process for initiation into the Catholic Church for those people who have not been baptized, have been baptized in a different Christian tradition, or who have baptized Catholic and have not received the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation.
If a person would like to complete the initiation process, he or she is welcome to join us for the journey. Please contact our Department of Religious Education at 860-236-3545 about the Period of Inquiry.
During 10:30 am Mass, our youngest children are called to participate in age appropriate reflection on the week's readings. The priest will invite the children to go with one of our experienced teachers while the rest of the parish community listens to the readings and homily. The children return and process in during the offertory. Parents are always welcome to accompany their children downstairs.
