Bishop Steven J. Raica and the Friars celebrated Frs. Mark and Dominic’s Silver Jubilee (25th Anniversary) of Religious Profession on the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Fr. Mark grew up in Huntsville Alabama. After attending a prominent engineering school in Colorado he worked as an engineer. Following his return to Church, he entered the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word in 1994 and spent the early years of formation assisting with studio production at EWTN. Br. Mark was ordained to the priesthood on October 4, 2003. Fr. Mark was elected Community Servant (Superior) on June 21, 2016. He also hosts “Life on the Rock,” and serves on the EWTN review board. His hobbies are reading, biking and swimming.
Fr. Dominic comes from Wisconsin. While studying to become an engineer in college, the devotion of a college roommate inspired him to return to the Catholic faith with a renewed zeal. After working in Chicago as an engineer for a few years, he entered the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word in 1994. On June 4, 2004 Br. Dominic was ordained to the priesthood. In August of 2012 he completed studies in Canon Law at Catholic University of America in Washington DC.
We thank them for their fidelity and their witness as consecrated religious and ms. May the Lord grand them many more holy years!
