Saint Mark's Catholic Church of Belmont Welcomes you to our Parish!

 

Back in 1960, boundaries for two churches: Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, Belmont, and St. Gregory's Catholic Church, San Mateo, were changed and St. Mark's Catholic Church was created from the areas east of El Camino in Belmont and Sterling Downs and Homeview area. Our first Mass at St. Mark's was held September 14, 1965 in a large garage on Old County Road which was found by our Pastor at the time, Fr. David Walsh.

Ground was broken on our present site, where St. Mark’s Catholic Church was built and dedicated, in October 1971. At that time we did not have a Parish Center, so the church was also a multi-purpose building where dinners, dances, bingo, etc. were held. Folding chairs were moved out and brought back in after functions to set up for again for Masses. Our Parish Hall was finally built and later was dedicated to Fr. Flanagan (our first pastor) in March of 2006. We have had many upgrades over the years with carpet and pews with kneelers added, a new roof with a stained glassed cupola, and two grottoes for devotion to Mary and Joseph on the sides of the church. We also have a chapel where our Tabernacle is and daily Mass is celebrated. This is also where our younger children have their Sunday liturgy. 

Families, couples, and individuals from BelmontSan Carlos, Redwood Shores, and greater San Mateo, make up the parishioners of St. Mark's Catholic Church.
