In sympathy – Deacon Marty Thiel

The parish community is saddened to pass along the news of the passing of Deacon Marty Thiel.  Deacon Marty was ordained a deacon in 1986 and formally retired in April of 2017.  In addition to his ministry at the parish, Deacon Marty was an integral part of the diocesan prison ministry at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center. Deacon Marty would often tell stories from the prison ministry as inmates would refer to him as “Rev.”  Deacon Marty had a special place in his heart for retreats and could be found assisting in the kitchen on Christ Renews His Parish, Journey and the High School Youth Ministry Time Out Retreats.

May eternal rest be granted unto him, O Lord…
