Serving St. Mark's
The Rev. Joseph A. Donnella became pastor of St. Mark's in September 2017. His responsibilities include leading worship, preaching, teaching, visitation, counseling, and shepherding St. Mark's Lutheran Church.
St. Mark's is blessed to have several deacons called to volunteer their service and ministry. Members of The Order of St. Stephen, Deacon (OSSD) assist the pastor and congregation council. They are:
Connie Lisch first arrived at St. Mark's in 1988 and has served as a deacon since 1995. Connie regularly assists on the altar, sings in the choir, and offers the Deacon's Mass at Keswick Multi-Care Center.
Sue Romanic came to St. Mark's in 1992 and has served as a deacon since 1995. Sue has taught children's Sunday School, assisted with a children's choir, visited hospitalized members, and married one couple. She uses her background in education and human development, along with her knowledge of the Bible, to work with people who hoard.
