DEACON GERARD DE FUENTE
Our parish is fortunate to have one of our newly ordained deacons, Deacon Gerard de la Fuente, appointed to serve at St. Mark’s Church. Deacon Gerard will be joining the St. Mark's family the weekend of August 6 & 7. Here is a little information about Deacon Gerard
God has blessed me abundantly and our Lord has constantly been renewing my faith throughout the years. As a young adult, I met my wife at a Catholic Retreat, and we’ve been together since. Our marriage has been blessed by the Marriage Encounter and Family Encounter Retreats. As a couple, we’ve found that taking time to carve out time for God and time for each other provides times of renewal and refreshment. As a newly ordained Deacon, I offer to you and to our Lord the sacrifice of my time. May it be pleasing to our Lord and fruitful for our community of St. Mark.
In my spare time, I can be found helping my wife’s baking business (sometimes caught over sampling the sweet baked goods), and fine-tuning my barbecue skills (smoked a 16 pound brisket on Independence Day). Normal work days I work remotely for a San Francisco based IT firm as a Director of Quality. I manage a team of 22 Quality Engineers and Technical Support Engineers in Brazil and here in the United States. My workday starts at Noon and ends at 8pm.
PASTORAL PLANNING TASK FORCE UPDATE
NEW BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY
Everyone experiences the death of a loved one in a personal way. Some need and want to talk about the loss of a loved one while others cannot speak easily of their feelings of grief, pain, and sorrow. All of us need caring support to work through our grief and find our way in our altered condition. Praying with others who are grieving provides collective strengthening as we journey along beside one another with attentive compassion. Every person has a unique story. But we all share in the commonality of deep sorrow and the need to adjust to an altered life; the life we are called to embrace, grow through, and grow into. Those of us who are still alive cherish the connection with those who have died and oftentimes struggle to make sense of how to go on living our altered connection.
Come and pray together, with Joan Wania, for the wisdom, strength and understanding necessary to move forward through life without the physical presence and companionship of the one or ones you love.
To inform us of your interest in St. Mark’s Bereavement Ministry contact Joan Wania by email at: [email protected]
Please indicate a day and time that is most convenient for you. We will strive to schedule a bi-weekly opportunity accordingly. It will not be necessary to attend every opportunity to benefit from the prayerful, compassionate, and reflective time spent togethe.

Father Jim's important Blog this week in regards to the latest overturning of Roe vs. Wade decision and the impact.
Violence and death are more readily accepted by society to solve complex problems when vulnerable life is
destroyed at the very beginning of life, and the killing takes place within the very heart of, and with the
complicity of the family. As Mother Teresa stated: “Abortion has pitted mother against their children and
women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships.”
---Fr. Jim Hewes
