The community of the Church of St. Mark in Fallston will celebrate its 125th anniversary this weekend.
The event will begin with a Mass of Remembrance today (Friday, Sept. 28), and will culminate in a Mass on Sunday, Sept. 30, with dedication of the new bell tower and walkway.
As part of the celebration, a horse and buggy will carry the St. Mark's pastor, Father Jerry Francik, and Archbishop of Baltimore William E. Lori to the church for the anniversary Mass at 2:45 p.m Sunday, as would have happened 125 years ago.
At the conclusion of the Mass, around 4:45 p.m., parishioners will join with the archbishop and the pastor in dedicating the walkway and bell tower.
An anniversary program, featuring live and silent auctions, and a dinner will follow at the Maryland Golf & Country Clubs in Bel Air, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
