From 2000 to 2008, he served as the Coordinator of Staff for the Diocese of New Ulm in Minnesota. During that time, he was involved with the development and implementation of a diocesan plan by which the Diocese became the first in the country to cluster all parishes into what are called “Area Faith Communities.” He has extensive parish experience in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee as a religious educator, youth minister, business manager, and pastoral associate. Mark lectured in pastoral studies for nine years at Sacred Heart School of Theology and in theological studies for four years at Mount Mary College in Wauwatosa, WI.

Fr. Greg Holicky (1964) | Secretary

attended Saint Lawrence for high school and two years of college; completed a Philosophy Degree at Mount Saint Mary of the West (“The Athenaeum of Ohio”) in Norwood, (Cincinnati) Ohio. He studied Theology at the North American College in Rome at the Pontifical Gregorian University and the University for the Propagation of the Faith. Fr. Holicky was ordained a Priest of the Diocese of Gary, IN, in Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome on the 17th of December, 1971. He served as Assistant Pastor and Pastor in various parishes, and now Chaplain at Saint Margaret Mercy Hospital, Hammond, IN for the last 16 years. His long-standing peripheral interests include music. He has built two full-console electronic organs from kits: one for Saint Lawrence, the year he was
a senior, and one for his father. Over the past several years, he has toured the pipe organs of diverse cities with the Organ Historical Society, and also enjoys the smaller pipe organ tradition from carnivals, carousels, and the street-grinder tradition. He built his first personal computer (with a soldering iron) in 1976, and has been falling behind the technology ever since!
