Class of 2024
Each of the Vestry members were asked to reflect on the following questions:
WHY DO YOU FEEL CALLED TO SERVE ON THE VESTRY OF ST. MARK’S?
God calls us to love one another and serve one another—within our congregation, our community, and across the world. I have always been drawn to service-oriented groups and organizations in the church, the community, and even professionally. It is that same tug I believe is calling me to serve on the Vestry. I hope and pray that working together, the Vestry may be a blessing to others.
PLEASE DESCRIBE YOUR PARTICIPATION AT ST. MARK’S AND/OR IN THE COMMUNITY, INDICATING EXPERIENCES THAT YOU THINK WILL BE HELPFUL FOR THE VESTRY.
I have been honored to serve in our church’s outreach to Crockett Academy as well as the church’s Finance Committee. I presently am serving as a board member of my Homeowners Association, a member and past president of the Alamo Heights Rotary Club, and member and former president at the Texas City Management Association. I would hope the lessons learned over the years in these and other groups will allow me to contribute to the Vestry.
ST. MARK’S CORE VOCATION IS FEEDING SAN ANTONIO WITH THE BREAD OF LIFE: FEEDING THE HUNGRY WITH REAL FOOD; FEEDING THOSE WHO ARE HUNGRY FOR KNOWLEDGE AND MEANING; FEEDING THOSE WHO ARE HUNGRY FOR BEAUTY AND CREATIVITY. HOW DO YOU ENVISION THE VESTRY WORKING IN SUPPORT OF THIS VOCATION?
Our fellow parishioners are active in so many professions and activities across our community, radiating God’s love and reflecting St. Mark’s Core Vocation in the world. My hope is that the Vestry will continue to listen, pray, and discern the best ways to support our fellow parishioners—individually and collectively—so that we may be a blessing to others in the larger San Antonio community both in the programs and events we presently offer but also in those that are yet to come.
WHEN DID YOU JOIN ST. MARK’S AND WHAT CONTINUES TO DRAW YOU TO THIS COMMUNITY?
I joined St. Mark‘s in 2016 after a lifetime membership in another downtown congregation. I was and continue to be drawn to St. Mark’s because of the people who are welcoming and supportive of each other. I pray that the church’s ministries and programs to each other and the community show our love of people from all walks of life.
