Saint Mark - The Son of a House Church Keeper

Saint Mark
Mark the Evangelist (also known as John Mark) is best known for being the author of the second Gospel.  However, a less-known fact is that his mother, Mary, let her home be used as a place for the very early Christians of Jerusalem to gather and pray.  This was the home that Peter went to when the angel of the Lord miraculously released him from prison.


Acts 12:12
Feast Day of Saint Mark: April 25
