Between 1960 and 1971, when their new school opened, St. Mark students attended St. Ephrem School, Bensalem Township. The former school burned and was removed. Bristol Fire Co. No. 2 battled the blaze. The stone cross on the front roof was placed at the entrance of the new school property. Cross was moved to the school on the riverside in 2012.
