 About St. Mark - the Evangelist

St. Mark was associated with St. Paul and St. Barnabas (who was Mark’s cousin) on their missionary journey through the island of Cyprus. St. Mark was also in Rome with St. Peter and St. Paul.

St. Mark was the founder of the Church in Alexandria, Egypt.

St. Mark fulfilled in his life what every Christian is called to do: proclaim to all people the Good News that is the source of salvation.

He died a martyr’s death. He is the patron saint of notaries.

St. Mark, the patron saint of our school, is represented by a winged lion because his Gospel begins with the story of John the Baptist, who, like a roaring lion, called people to repent.

St. Mark’s Feast Day is April 25.
