My name is Mark DeCelles. You may have seen me at Mass this past weekend, but for those who have not….I am a seminarian for the Diocese of Scranton and I am in my second year of theological studies at St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, Maryland.

I am thrilled that the diocese has assigned me to Holy Cross and Blessed Sacrament Parishes for the summer!

My family and I are parishioners at Immaculate Conception Church in Scranton, where we got to know Monsignor Delaney many years ago. I am a native of Dunmore and I studied at St. Clare’s, St. Paul’s and Scranton Prep. I have a Ph.D in theology from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC; my Bachelor’s and Master’s came from the same school.

I am looking forward to getting to know you all over the next several weeks. God Bless You!
