Parish Short History
In 1905, the first Catholic Church in the Birmingham area was built at the Thomas Station, near the area of Ensley, Alabama.
Reverend John B.
The new Saint Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church was announced to be built south and east of Birmingham, and on May 23, 1999, the Feast of Pentecost, Bishop David Foley with concelebrant Fathers Patrick Murphy, Brian Egan and Crescenzio DeFazio celebrated the first Mass in Greystone Elementary School with the members of this newly formed church. Father Patrick Murphy was appointed as the first pastor.
Father Murphy organized a building committee to begin to consolidate design concepts for the new structure. The church was to be built in the form of a cross, known in architectural language as cruciform. The ceiling of the structure is 57 feet high, and the bell tower reaches 105 feet. It was designed to seat 1020 worshipers.
