St. Mark now has a youth music ministry, Ascension, which provides music for the monthly Youth Mass on the third Sunday of each month at the 12:00 noon Mass.

Ascension was formed after members of our Youth Group attended the Steubenville East youth conference, which featured contemporary Christian music.  The youth learned many contemporary songs and Mass settings, and made their debut at the 2016 Confirmation Mass.  Shortly after, a monthly Youth Mass was begun, featuring our youth as readers, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, ushers and musicians.

Any youth in grades 7-12 who are interested in singing or playing an instrument with us is encouraged to check us out!  Contact Jared Forcier, Youth Minister, for more information.

Ascension practices every Sunday evening from 5:00 to 6:30 PM in the Youth Group room.  Additionally, members must be available for Youth Mass at 12:00 PM on the 3rd Sunday of each month, and a dress rehearsal the evening before each Youth Mass.  A number of concerts and special performances outside of Mass will be planned.
