About Deacon Mark

I was ordained in the Archdiocese of San Antonio [Texas] in June 1987. I've ministered in the military community at Ramstein Air Base Germany, with the deployed forces in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait supporting Operations Desert Shield/Storm, and at Fort Benjamin Harrison [Indianapolis] Indiana. For the past 20 years, I have served at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Noblesville Indiana. Originally from Charlotte Michigan, I served a 25-year career in the Air Force [1970-1995] as a Public Affairs practitioner retiring as a Senior Master Sergeant [E-8]. Following his time in the Air Force, I entered my second career as a high school English teacher retiring after 15 years in the classroom.  I hold two Associates in Applied Science degrees from the Community College of the Air Force, an Associate of Arts from the University of Maryland, and Bachelor's and Master's of Science degrees in Secondary Education from Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis. Kathy and I have three children: Michael [a major in the Air Force], Audrey [a production control specialist with NAVISTAR], and Erica [a major in the Army].
