Team members delivering the best "awes" enjoy gifting new baby families with cradle crosses and knit baby blankets lovingly handmade by parishioners.
Most prayer requests are not published in the bulletin; thus, the prayer chain team remembers all those parishioners in need of supernatural uplifting and praise.

Parishioners tenderly knit prayer shawls that are delivered to those in need. This includes members and non-members. Special requests for colors and patterns are welcomed.

Team members generously taxi parishioners unable to drive themselves to appointments, the store, church, and occasions.
What we do...
The Pastoral Care ministry is to meet the spiritual and often physical needs of St. Mark's parishioners. It enables those who are ill or home bound to stay connected with their parish. The Pastoral Care team can participate in one or more of the ministries offered. The team enjoys flexibility for their time and the diversity of talents utilized. Contact Jan Dauebner to learn more about and get involved.
