The Respect Life Ministry organized the St. Mark Pro-Life Day for the 40 Days for Life campaign and invited other parish ministries to join them by spending one hour in front of A Preferred Women’s Health Center on Latrobe Drive to pray for an end of abortion.

The priests at St. Mark Church have begun anointing parishioners to provide extra spiritual protection in the face of the grave evil that occurs in and around abortion facilities.
