St. Bartholomew's New Pastor
Multi-faceted. Spiritual. Easy-going, yet deep-thinking. Those are just some of the words that describe our new pastor, Father Mark Smith. Born and raised in Rockville, he is the youngest of 11 children, all graduates of St. Mary’s.
“My parents were good, strong Catholics,” he says. “Faith was a big part of our family.”
After studying business and starting a small business centered around fitness, Father Mark was called to the priesthood at age 33. Read more in Our Parish Times, pg. 42.
