Liturgy & Lunch
Every Wednesday during Lent – beginning on Ash Wednesday, and continuing until the day before Holy Thursday – join the Community of St. Mark’s in prayer (daily Mass celebrated at St. Mark’s Chapel) and at lunch in Plato’s Cave Café. Special guests will facilitate dialogue about contemporary hot button issues, and encourage all who are gathered to cultivate the world anew. Learn More
The word veritas is the Latin word for ‘truth.’ This faith-study program, facilitated by Sister Angela Marie Castellani (FSE), with student-leaders, engages participants in dialogue about humanity’s longing to discover each person’s own personal calling- and common search for truth through forms of prayer, personal testimony, and fellowship.
Veritas takes place once a month, on-campus, throughout the academic year (September until April) and is open to all persons.
“While diversity in the expression of faith can and does contribute to the catholicity (universality) of Christ’s Church, those divisions resulting from discord and disagreement between Christians are an open contradiction of the Gospel. Division undermines the Church’s capacity for mission. Christ calls us to be reconciled with one another in order that we might give a more faithful witness to His love for all of humanity.”

At least once each year, during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, our campus invites Christians of all denominations- and all persons of good will to gather at Saint Mark’s Parish to pray for unity.
“The [Catholic] Church exhorts her [faithful] that through dialogue and collaboration with the followers of other religions, carried out with prudence and love and in witness to the Christian faith and life, they recognize, preserve and promote the good things, spiritual and moral, as well as the socio-cultural values found among these [persons].”
