WELCOME TO ST. MARK’S PARISH
This is the official website of St. Mark’s Parish in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. Our church provides a home for both students and residents living on or near the University of British Columbia Campus (UBC). Whether you are a Catholic Christian looking to further your faith and service, or someone seeking knowledge of the faith and spirituality, you are welcome here! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
During this Year of Mercy, it is important that we not only help the poor in our community, but we accept forgiveness from our Lord and learn to forgive others. Listen to Pope Francis speak on this…
