Strategic Plan Updating
As a result of last summer’s survey, and the changes that have occurred at St Mark’s, we are updating our Strategic Plan.
Our faith filled community is comprised of so many gifted individuals whose collective efforts have the ability to shape our community and our world! Please make time to attend one of the focus group sessions to share your experiences, ideas and dreams for the future of St. Mark’s. Meetings will be one hour and will be led by a trained facilitator. While meetings have been designated for some of our specific ministries and groups, please choose a meeting that is convenient for your schedule.

Meet Father Reginald U. Nwauzor
I was born and raised in Umuapu village at Aba, Abia State, Nigeria West Africa. My parents, Joseph and Mary are long deceased. I come from a fairly large family, 5 girls and 5 boys although 3 are deceased. My extended family today exceeds 90 including grand and great grand nieces and nephews. My parents were successful farmers. My father was a traditional priest and a native doctor serving his community traditionally before converting to Christianity at eighty-five. I can confidently claim that my father handed over the baton of priesthood to me but according to the rites and rituals of the Roman Catholic Church. I was not Catholic from birth but was baptized at eleven with my mother on the same day. I miss my parents and they remain the best teachers and friends that I ever had.
