Marion coordinates the Stewardship Committee and Ministry to the ill and homebound. She provides a pastoral presence to assist parishioners to be a Beacon of Hope, a sign of the healing and reconciling presence of Christ to all. She follows up on communications related to pastoral issues.
She has served at Curé d’Ars part-time since 1991, with the exception of 7 years (2008-2015) when she served in Gulu, Uganda.

Her religious community, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (St. Louis, MO) has encouraged her in over 50 years of service. The CSJ charism is “loving unity” with ”the dear neighbor from whom one does not separate oneself.”
