Class of 2026
Each of the Vestry members were asked to reflect on the following questions:
Describe your participation at St. Mark’s and/or in the community? Indicate experiences you think would be helpful to your time on vestry.
I have been an usher since joining St. Mark’s. I love greeting people and assisting with the worship service. I have also been the St. Mark’s liaison to Habitat for Humanity, served on the Commission on Ministry committee, the re-visioning of the Lenten offering committee, the Finance committee and have volunteered serving during Lenten Luncheons and Christmas to the Streets.
Feeding San Antonio with the Bread of Life: feeding the hungry with real food; feeding those who are hungry for knowledge and meaning; and feeding those who are hungry for beauty and creativity is the core vocation of St. Mark’s. How do you envision the vestry working to support this vocation?
I support every way St. Mark’s lives out its position as a downtown church ministering in so many ways to the people in need of food, shelter, spiritual support, and by providing a safe, beautiful space with an unmatched music program. I think I am a good listener and a consensus builder by nature. I am a problem solver who seeks to get tasks accomplished on time and as planned. I am honored to be considered as a vestry candidate and will give it my best effort and the attention it deserves.
When did you join St. Mark’s and what continues to draw you to this community?
We joined St. Mark’s in 1998 and were drawn by the beautiful sanctuary space, the wonderful music program, and the welcoming nature of everyone we met. Our three children were baptized and confirmed here, cared for by the loving nursery team, and served St. Mark’s in the boy and girl choir and later as acolytes. Our spiritual home is here. Even when we moved to Florida for three years, we always returned to St. Mark’s on every visit to San Antonio.
