Gaudium et Spes (Joy and Hope) 

Study Series

Gaudium et Spes - Wikiquote

Have you ever wondered about the role of the Catholic Church

in the modern world? The Second Vatican Council had a lot to say on

these questions in its Pastoral Constitution and in the document

known by its first 3 words, Gaudium et Spes / Joy and Hope,

this document addresses these things and more.


Come join Deacon Ned as we read, explore and reflect on this important document. 

Meeting dates begin Nov.  14

Mondays Nov 14, Dec. 5, 12, 19, & 28  at 6pm in JPII

“Undiagnosed” -Alex Yiu’s Journey

We are thrilled to share with all of St. Mark's Parish an exciting update from the filmmakers who have followed and filmed Alex’s journey for 9 years! The world premiere of the documentary film "Undiagnosed" will take place at the 38th Boston Film Festival in Boston, Massachusetts 22-26 Sept. 2022. You can view the film festival trailer link and access tickets to the virtual viewing of "Undiagnosed" at the Boston Film Festival.

“Undiagnosed” film also has been accepted at 8 other upcoming film festivals around the world. Please visit the film website


We are honored to be part of this project to raise awareness of those who suffer from debilitating illness without a diagnosis.

We hope this film will instill an urge for people to take action and help change the future of medicine.

Thank you for years of support, love and prayers.  -Caroline
