Funerals

Saint Mark Catholic Church faith community extends condolences on the loss of your loved one. Our prayer is for God’s consolation to ease your sorrow.  Our Pastoral Associate, Charlotte Henderson, 443-981-3162, will help you with questions you may have and assist you in the planning of the Funeral Mass. The Mass of Christian Burial is the heart of the Funeral Rite, and is an opportunity for the whole Church to pray that the deceased may now share in eternal life. 

“In the face of death, the Church confidently proclaims that God has created each person
for eternal life and that Jesus, the Son of God, by his death and resurrection, has broken
the chains of sin and death that bound humanity. Christ ‘achieved his task of redeeming
humanity and giving perfect glory to God, principally by the paschal mystery of his blessed
passion, resurrection from the dead, and glorious ascension.'” ~ The Order of Christian
