Saint Mark Parish

The St. Mark Community in Venice, California is a dynamic, multi-cultural and close-knit Catholic community of parishioners, school families and neighbors that come together to support and uplift each other.Whether it is to support the school, the Church or its community members, we as Catholics and neighbors step up to volunteer, fundraise and contribute wherever there is a need. Across the globe and right here in our very own community, the COVID-19 pandemic has left many individuals in challenging financial times. Some of our families have lost their jobs and are struggling to pay rent, put groceries on the table and just keep up with daily financial responsibilities. Every dollar counts, and right now some of our families could use the generosity and love of our community in the shape of financial support. 

To help meet this need, we have expanded our ministry - Loaves and Fishes - to build a fund to help our community in need. We are asking your help in the form of financial donations. Any amount will help towards lifting up our community members in need. Additionally, we hope that this new ministry will be shared with your family and friends and across the city of Los Angeles. 

Thank you for your help and support.
