Alumni Prayer Service

On Wednesday, March 28 at 11:30 a.m., a prayer service will be held for alumni in the School Chapel. The service will last no more than 30 minutes. We hope this will offer a relaxed, peaceful opportunity for our graduates to reconnect with the spiritual support of the Saint Mark's community in this season of prayer.

Alumni Monthly Giving Challenge

As we kick off a new year, we would like to ask our alumni to join us in our 2012 resolution: Making an outstanding Catholic education a possibility for all students who wish to attend Saint Mark’s. Each year we give more than $1 million in financial aid to worthy students--a large amount of which is donated by Spartan graduates.

Our goal is to register 100 alumni in our monthly giving program. Just fill out the form at www.stmarkshs.net/support and select “Recurring Gifts.” Every month, an amount chosen by you will be deducted from your account. The size of the gift doesn’t matter--by this simple show of support, you give our students the confidence to achieve excellence by letting them know that Saint Mark’s graduates stand behind them all the way.
Wear your love of Saint Mark's on your sleeve? All grads who enroll in the monthly giving program will receive a limited edition alumni t-shirt!
