I can sum up in one word what he offered to me and all the parishioners, Presence! Fr. Mark's key phrase was much more than a catch phrase, it was a way of life. He forever reminded me that ministry was about people, and being in their midst. You need to listen, to hold their hands when necessary, to cry with them, to be with them.
Well Fr. Mark, you may be gone but your presence will be forever felt and never forgotten.
God Bless you my friend!
