Lenten Liturgy & Lunch – Fill Your Bowl With Joy

Every Wednesday during Lent join the Community of St. Mark’s at UBC for Faith, Food and Fellowship. Special guests will facilitate dialogue about contemporary hot button issues, and encourage all who are gathered to cultivate the world anew.



Faith Join us every Wednesday, at 12:10pm, at St. Mark’s Parish, for the celebration of Mass.

Food Stay awhile! Get to know our small campus community over a warm homemade meal of vegetarian soup and bread, free of charge. Lunch will be served after Mass each week in Plato’s Cave Café.

Fellowship Lent is a time of “showing concern for others by small yet concrete signs of our belonging to the one human family” (Message of His Holiness Pope Francis for Lent (2015), 4 October 2014).  Come and listen to compelling stories and engage in conversation.


The Lenten Liturgy & Lunch series is designed to engage all who are gathered in conversations about hope and renewal.
