It is important for our records to reflect you as an active member of Saint Mark Parish through your use of your weekly offertory envelopes. Even if you are unable to give a monetary donation, please put your empty offertory envelope in the offertory basket. This is the only way your participation in weekly Mass can be recorded. As a standard practice throughout our diocese, if an envelope is not used for six concurrent months, that parishioner will be considered inactive (and envelopes will be canceled). So please utilize your envelopes. If you are in need of envelopes, please notify the parish secretary.
