Collections boxes will be in our church entrances.

Here is a list of priority supply needs, based on last year:
Calculators, binder dividers, markers, backpacks for younger children, dry erase markers, 3-ring binders, loose-leaf paper, composition books, new packages of socks & underwear for boys and girls ages 5-18. Any and all donations are gratefully accepted.

You have been very generous in the past and we hope you’ll continue to help needy children have the tools they need to get the best education they can—they are our future!!


Thank You!

kids backpacksDear Fr. John Salatino, Wendy Joyce, & all the St. Mark’s Parishioners,

Thank you for all the generous donations made to our Back to School distributions program. We greatly appreciate the help. Over 120 area children were able to return to school with new backpacks and supplies, thanks to the support of concerned people in the community such as yourselves. Thank you again.
