Plan calls for razing, rebuilding Lexington Market

St. Mark's in Fallston to celebrate 125 years this weekend

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.
