Fr. Mark joined St. Monica as associate pastor in 2012. He was born and raised in Highland Park in the San Gabriel Valley, and attended college and graduate school in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was ordained in 1996. Before coming to St. Monica, he served as a chaplain at L.A. County/USC Medical Center and Keck Medical Center. Fr.
