Looking for a way to give back to your parish? Consider these volunteer opportunities!

If you have been looking forward to serving the St. Mark’s community with your talents and your time, we have great opportunities for you!

All volunteers must undergo Safe Environment training, as directed by the Diocese of Dallas. This training can be completed online this year. Once you have spoken with one of our department representatives, we will redirect you to complete the training.
