New Bible Study! Hebrews: The New and Eternal Covenant

Embark on a guided tour of the “Holy of Holies” of biblical theology. The book of Hebrews is like a little Catechism. It is steeped in rich truths that are foundational to our Catholic Faith, but its highly refined theological concepts can be difficult for even the most seasoned Bible scholars to unpack.

Presented by Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins, Hebrews: The New and Eternal Covenant draws out the riches of this sublime book in a way that makes them easier to understand. It draws connections between the Old and New Testaments, the Liturgy, the Eucharist, the priesthood, and so much more. Most importantly, Hebrews will help Catholics appreciate the astounding generosity of God as they see the wonders he has given us in the Church.

WHEN: Sundays at 10AM beginning with August 8th

WHERE: In-Person and via Zoom

HOW MUCH: $31 for the Workbook

HOW: Fill out the for below or contact Dean Wurtz to sign up!

COVID-19 Guidelines

As the number of vaccinated individuals increase and restrictions have begun to ease across the country and within our Diocese, at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, we continue to recommend (not require) the use of face coverings on our campus as a precautionary measure. Whether you chose to wear a face mask or not, we encourage you to continue demonstrating mutual respect and compassion for your fellow parishioners as we transition into this new phase.

More Details:

  • Mass Attendance, Sacraments, Ministry Meetings do not require the use of face coverings, but are still encouraged in close spaces.
  • During Mass, those who wish to receive the Holy Eucharist in the tongue are no longer required to wait until the end of the line.
  • During Mass, the right side of the sanctuary will be reserved for those who wish to social distance, meaning alternate pews will remain unseated.
  • St. Mark Catholic School has separate guidelines for students, faculty, and visitors.

We thank you for your cooperation!
