Sundays at 10:00 am
The Sunday Solemn High Mass at 10:00 am is the highlight of the week for many at St. Mark's. Our High Mass uses incense every Sunday and enjoys high quality music from gifted musicians who are mostly volunteer. The Men of the Choir sing the Minor Propers, and when the choir is on summer break (July and August), a cantor leads the music. The Gloria and the Creed are usually sung by the congregation, whereas the Kyrie, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei are sung by the full choir, however, exceptions to this practice are made. This service lasts approximately one hour and fifteen minutes, and nursery care is available.
On Sundays after the 10:00 am High Mass we gather in the Parish Hall for refreshments and informal conversation. This is a time when parishioners may get to know each other in a relaxed setting over coffee, tea, and a variety of foods. Sometimes we gather for a parish lunch, and donations are taken to help cover the cost of the meal, however, no one is turned away. If you would like to meet other parishioners, the Sunday High Mass and Aloha Hour is one of the best ways to do it.
