Beloved in Christ:

Blessed Feast.

With great sadness and hope in the resurrection, I am passing on the news of the falling asleep in the Lord of Deacon Mark Baker on Thursday, May 17, 2018. Deacon Mark has been serving at St. George in Portland, Oregon since March of 2017 and served at St. James Church in Modesto, California for several years prior to that. Many of you will remember Deacon Mark from our Diocesan Clergy Seminars.

The funeral service will be at St. George Church in Portland on Wednesday, May 23 at 12 Noon followed by the Meal of Mercy. The internment will follow at 3 PM at Lincoln Memorial Park.

In addition to praying for his soul, please remember Deacon Mark’s wife, Richone Mary, and his children, Shiloh, Sarah, Martin and Shelly-Anne, in your prayers.

In Christ, Who is our resurrection and our life,

Father Michael Habib
Pacific Northwest Deanery

Thought for the Day

God the Holy Spirit has many abodes in this vast universe, but a pure heart is the place in which He most delights to dwell. This is His true abode; all others are only His workshop. -- St. Nicholai of Zica
