Marianne attended Gold Coast Via de Cristo weekend #74 in 2007.
She attends St. Paul Lutheran Church in Boca Raton and lives in Delray Beach with her husband, John, and their cutest, screw-ball of a pup – Oscar.
After 31 years of marriage, she still considers John to be the kindest, most humble, and gentle man of God. They have an amazing daughter, Kate, whose compassionate heart, wisdom beyond her years, and strong faith have led her to a nursing career after graduating with her BSN in December.
Marianne graduated from Kean College (now University) in Union, NJ, and currently works in administrative capacities to wind down a company in liquidation. On the lighter side of life, she considers herself to be a very competitive Catch Phrase player.
Her community and mission organization involvement currently includes serving as Mission Co-chair of St. Paul’s Mission Board, where projects encompass the Local, Regional, National, and international needs of the communities. She works specifically with Local to partner with St. Gregory’s Homeless Mission and Spirit of Giving Network.
Marianne never considered serving on the Secretariat a part of her vision, but was taken by surprise when asked, and after much prayer, was led to accept as part of God’s plan.
