Helen Marsh Honored in Metthew 25 Publication

Helen Marsh and Frank Marsh are extremely active members of St. Mark’s parish in San Marcos.  They attend daily mass, help in the office, liturgical ministries, councils, and all big parish events.  

Helen, in particular, has served behind the scenes with the annual interfaith Homeless Shelter hosted by St. Mark’s and the weekly preparation of sandwiches for the homeless in our community.  She has helped various ill parishioners with meals including a monthly meal for a family with sextuplets.  She has assisted disabled Veterans and the wounded warriors at Cam Pendleton.  

Thank you for your support of our blood drives

Thank you for all your help with the blood drive this past weekend! We collected 41 pints of blood which will help 123 people with the blood products they need.


Just think how grateful those who have received the gift of life just with the help of all those who volunteered. 

This year alone our parish has donated; 160 pints (or 20 gallons) so far this year. We have one more drive in November to go.  Over the years we have collected more than 1366 pints or 165.3 Gallons.



Our maintenance building has been repeatedly broken into.

We ask that if you live near the church property and notice anyone trying to break in to any of our buildings to please call the Sheriff’s dept. immediately.


All Souls Novena

You may wish to remember your loved ones in a novena of Masses.

All Souls envelopes will be available at the entrances of the church.

You may write the names of your loved ones on the envelopes and place them into any collection basket or turn them in at the office.

The names will remain on the altar throughout  the month of November.

Thank You For Your Generosity!
