The Reverend Canon Mark R. Sutherland

 

It is with tremendous joy that we announce that the Reverend  

Mark Robert Sutherland, Canon for Congregational Formation at Trinity Cathedral in the Diocese of Arizona, has been called and duly elected as the 12th Rector of St. Martin's, effective Sunday, June 15, 2014. 

 

The Discernment Team voted unanimously to recommend Mark as the next Rector of St. Martin's, and the Vestry voted unanimously to accept the decision of the Discernment Team.

 

Mark is a native of Christchurch, New Zealand, and a 1977 graduate of the University of Canterbury in London (LLB).  Mark began training for priestly ministry in 1982 at Ripon College, Cuddesdon, at Oxford University, and then went to Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California. In 1985 he was ordained deacon in St. Paul's Cathedral, London. He was ordained priest in 1986 and served for seven years in two parishes of the Diocese of London.

 

Early on, Mark was drawn to a ministry to those in emotional and spiritual distress and trained in psychoanalytic counseling at the University of London, and obtained an M.A. in Adult and Continuing Education, as well as an M.A. in Transpersonal Psychotherapy from the University of East London. For 12 of the next 18 years, Mark directed one of the largest departments of spiritual care in the UK at the South London & Maudsley NHS Trust. He became a nationally recognized educator, speaker, and writer on the complex interface between spiritual life and emotional development.

 

In the spring of 2010, after a year as a chaplain resident at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, Bishop Kirk Smith appointed him Canon for Congregational Formation (Canon Pastor) to Trinity Cathedral. Mark served as Interim Dean for the next 16 months before resuming his position as Canon Pastor after the arrival of the current Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix, AZ, in January 2014.

 

Mark lives in central Phoenix with his spouse, Al Marcetti, and their Cocker spaniel, Charliegirl.

 

Mark's blog can be found at www.relationalrealities.com and his sermons are regularly posted on the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral website www.trinitycathedral.com.       

  

Mark and Al will join us at the 8 and 10AM services on Sunday, April 27, at which Mark will be our guest preacher.  Following each service, parishioners will have the opportunity to converse with Mark in a parish-wide forum.
