The Saint Mark’s National Honor Society is holding the first of its bi-annual blood drives from 7:30a.m. to 1:30p.m. today in the school gymnasium to benefit the Blood Bank of Delmarva.
Because of the constant need for blood in the Delmarva area, EVERYONE in the Spartan community is invited to donate. Parents, spouses, children, alumni, friends, etc. participate in this important Saint Mark’s event to benefit our community.
Together with other young ladies from Padua and St. Elizabeth's, Saint Mark's attended the High School Girls Retreatday at the Franciscan Spirituality Center located near Neumann University Campus. The theme for the day was “Our Vocation is like a Pilgrimage- Where is God taking us?”

Rooted in genuine appreciation for their service and sacrifice, Saint Mark’s High School has announced a program to honor and to assist the brave men and women who have served our country through military service through the creation of The Cpl. Stephen M. McGowan Fund. Named in honor of Stephen McGowan, a 1996 graduate of Saint Mark’s who was killed in Iraq in 2005 while serving in the army, the fund is a dedicated pool of financial aid dollars set aside to assist active duty military and veterans in making a Saint Mark’s education possible for their children.
We want all veterans and active duty military to know that there is a path for their children to attend Saint Mark’s. It is an honor to be of service to those who have served us and to do so while commemorating the life and the sacrifice of Cpl. McGowan.
Principal Fertal announced the creation of the fund at a Veteran’s Day breakfast at the school this morning, where he was joined by Michaela McGowan, a 2001 graduate of Saint Mark’s and sister of Stephen.

Saint Mark’s alumna Sister Ruth Harkins, IHM ‘76 was featured in the Catholic Standard article 'It's worth the risk to really follow your heart,' says Sister Ruth Harkins.” The article discusses her background leading her to enter religious life and a career that has spanned decades.
Saint Mark’s senior Matthew Holzapfel ’20 recently earned The Boy Scouts of America’s highest rank of Eagle. He completed all of the work and leadership roles required, as well as his Eagle project. The project involved building 440 feet of fencing for an organization called Reins of Life, an organization that provides children with disabilities horse therapy. The original fencing proposed concern as it was electric, but Matthew’s project changed it to three wooden rails.
Saint Mark's held our 50th Anniversary Remembrance Mass on All Saints Day to honor all the Spartan members who have entered heaven. The day began with a beautiful bell outside the school that was rung one time for each person our community has lost and their names were individually announced on each ring. The names were depicted in the theatre as well before Mass.
Mass included candles along the stage and was celebrated by Saint Mark’s alumnus Father Evers ‘01. During the event our new Eucharistic ministers were initiated and honored and the event concluded with a reception for our alumni guests who attended.
Sophia Kayatta '18 came home to Saint Mark's to guest instruct a dance fitness lesson in Fit For Life. Sophia is a Sophomore at the University of Delaware studying Health Behavior Science and a member of many academic and extra curricular clubs such as "Zumba Club." She has recently accepted an internship with the University Student Health Office as a Sophomore, which is a major honor and accomplishment! One of her favorite classes at Saint Mark's was Fit For Life and gladly came back to share what she has learned in college with current juniors and seniors and provide some information about her major, not to mention lead them in a super fun dance exercise! Sophia choreographed two routines for the current students! Thank you Sophia, congratulations on your accomplishments so far and good luck with the rest of your semester!
