Don't Just Go to Church, Be Church!

First Eucharist - St. Mark

We are pleased to help prepare your children for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.

Typically our 2nd grade students prepare for these sacraments, but we are honored to help students of all ages prepare for these beautiful sacraments. If your child is not enrolled in the Faith Formation program, please contact the Director of Faith Formation at 563-920-4836 or the Parish Office at 563-928-7200, to assist you.
