Please welcome Maria Barone as our new Youth and Young Adult Minister! 

Maria will begin work at St. Mark on July 15, 2017.  She comes to us after working as Assistant Coordinator of Youth Evangelization at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in Arizona assisting both Junior High and High School youth ministries.  She was then the Coordinator of Youth Evangelization where she lead, taught and coordinated events for the Edge youth ministry program and Sacramental Preparation for 7th and 8th grades.  Maria also assisted with the catechesis of children preparing for confirmation.

She comes with fantastic recommendations and is so excited to begin ministry here.  She will be married on July 1 in her hometown of Grand Island, NY and moving to the area to join her husband Travis.  She will be in touch with me to coordinate time(s) to come to the parish to meet everyone, introduce herself and begin understanding, listening and planning.
