Saint Mark’s, a co-educational, college preparatory Catholic high school, inspires young men and women to create a better world, one more pleasing to God and more helpful to others, by modeling faith, excellence, humility and integrity.

Message from the Principal

Dear Alumni, Parents, Students, and Friends of Saint Mark’s, As I write this letter, we are in the middle of a post-Labor Day heat wave. While we are craving cooler temperatures and fall colors, we are getting high temperatures and oppressive humidity. By the time you actually read this, however, it should feel like autumn and all will be well with the world. Our biggest news, of course, is the significant increase in the number of freshman students entering Saint Mark’s this fall – an increase of over 50% from last year! In this group, we see a number of young men and women who are “legacies” – students whose moms or dads (or both!) are alumni. We are always excited when alumni choose to carry on the Saint Mark’s tradition with their own sons and daughters. At the same time, families new to Saint Mark’s have the opportunity to begin their own legacies for years to come. As the Diocese of Wilmington winds down its sesquicentennial celebration later this year, we at Saint Mark’s are poised to begin our quinquagenary (50th or golden anniversary) celebration during the 2019 – 2020 school year. We are so excited as we look forward to this milestone in our history and prepare to celebrate the impact that Saint Mark’s High School has had on its students, families, and the community. In this issue of PostMark, we are proud to profile two of three men who graduated from Saint Mark’s and went on to be ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Wilmington. Fathers Glenn Evers, James Nash, and Timothy Nolan not only proudly serve in parishes in the diocese, they continue to bring honor to Saint Mark’s by living the gospel message we so strongly believe. We also recognize another alumnus, Brian Murray ’75, who shares his journey from his graduation from SMHS, through his successful career as an attorney, and, as he nears retirement, his reasons for becoming active in the life of Saint Mark’s and its alumni. As I begin my fourth year at Saint Mark’s, I continue to be impressed by the centrality of our mission statement and its importance to the school. I’ve never before been in a school in which students can actually recite the mission statement! More importantly, our students believe it and live it as they prepare to “create a better world, one more pleasing to God and more helpful to others, by modeling faith, excellence, humility, and integrity.” As we get close to Thanksgiving, I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to all of you who continue to be a part of the Spartan tradition. Your support of Saint Mark’s – as students, parents, alumni, donors, and friends – will guarantee that our alumni will continue to make their way into the world as successful men and women who positively impact their communities and the world. For that, I can only say thank you and God bless you for making a difference. Sincerely in Christ,

Richard A. Bayhan Principal

was during this time that the calling to the priesthood became irresistible to me, leading to my entry into the seminary in 1996. It had been twelve years at that point since I had graduated from Saint Mark’s, yet the excellent academic and faith formation that I received in high school still proved to be most helpful. Not only did Saint Mark’s leave me well versed in sacred scripture, Catholic morality and social justice, but I was also quite familiar with literature, and well-developed my writing skills. My favorite gift of being a priest is the ability to celebrate the Eucharist every day. There is little to compare with having the grace to share the true presence of Christ with others over these last sixteen years. This sacred trust has given me the opportunity to get to know countless fine people, to journey with them through their greatest joys and deepest sorrows. It has personally benefited me, as my prayer life has matured, so also my relationship with God has grown. I find that faithfully living out the promise of a lifelong vocational commitment provides a potential to give and receive love the magnitude of which could not otherwise be experienced; this holds true not only for the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but also for all sacred religious professions and the Sacrament of Marriage.

ASSOCIATE PASTOR OF ST. MARY OF THE ASSUMPTION AND THE DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE FOR CULTURAL MINISTRIES FOR THE DIOCESE OF WILMINGTON Could you tell a little about your vocation story? I felt the call from God to be a priest while I was still in college at the University of Delaware. In my early years at UD, I did not stop believing in the Catholic Faith, but unfortunately I did stop practicing it. As a result, over time I began to feel very empty inside and came to realize this was because I had removed God from my life. I went back to church and received the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist in a state of grace. I started going to daily Mass and began to develop a life of prayer and much spiritual reading. I read books on theology and the lives of the saints. One saint I came across was St. Padre Pio, my current favorite saint. As I read about his life, it felt like I was reading about my own. As I was reading I remember a question that came up from within my soul, “Lord, are you calling me to do what St. Padre Pio did... are you calling me to be a priest?” After I asked that question, I had perfect peaceful silence in my heart, and I have known ever since that God’s calling for me is to be a priest.

How did Saint Mark’s High School influence your faith and spiritual life? What I liked about my time at Saint Mark’s is the influence it had on my faith and spiritual life. While my faith was certainly reinforced at our school Masses, retreats, and theology classes, it was also nurtured well beyond where one would ordinarily expect to be spiritually fed. It was found at large in the faculty and the staff, in how they comported themselves, what they demanded, and in what they brought to the fields, halls, and classrooms.

What do you most remember about your time at Saint Mark’s? I first remember the really good friends I made, some of whom I carried with me through college and still keep in contact with today. I also value having gotten a very good education at Saint Mark’s which made the transition to college seamless. I remember finding my niche in sports and Saint Mark’s was good for me in helping me to find my place. It provided the space for me to discover that if something does not work out for you, keep trying and you will succeed – we are all meant to do something, but not to accomplish everything.

What is your favorite part of being a priest? My favorite part about being a priest is celebrating the sacraments. Giving souls new life in Baptism, forgiving people’s sins in Confession, and healing and preparing souls to go home to God in the Anointing of the Sick are all powerful moments for me. But perhaps most of all, I love celebrating the Holy Mass and consecrating bread and wine

into the Body and Blood of Christ. But then even better is to be able to share Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist with others. To be able to offer people the absolute best by giving them God-Present in the Holy Eucharist is one of the greatest blessings I have and one of the reasons I love being a priest.

What do you wish more people knew about the priesthood? The one thing I wish more people knew about the priesthood is what the priesthood truly is. The work of a priest was once best defined as to bring Jesus to people and people to Jesus. Hence, the priesthood stands as an amazing reality and blessing – that we can have access to God through these ordained men who stand as Jesus in our midst. However, the best part of the priesthood is that it offers us the ability to be with God. In the celebration of the sacraments the priest is in persona Christi capitis, meaning “in the person of Christ the head.” What this means is that by the mystery and power of God, in priests we can directly interact with God, Himself. And so I love to share the Good News that the priesthood changed my life forever when I experienced Jesus in a priest. And now as a priest I have the blessing and the challenge of returning the favor, in trying to be Jesus for others. 07

From Student to Volunteer An Interview with Brian Murray ’75


aint Mark’s alumnus Brian Murray ’75 has been calling Saint Mark’s his home in many ways. As a member of the third class to graduate back when Father Cini was principal, he has been at Saint Mark’s since the school’s opening and remains active today. Murray was first a student, then alumnus, and through time, a Saint Mark’s parent, volunteer, and current advisory board member. Murray went to public school in New Jersey until fifth grade, then moved to Delaware where he attended Wilmer E. Shue middle school. When a riot occurred in his school, his parents decided they wanted to seek a private education for Brian. When it was time to choose a high school, he had three choices: Salesianum, Saint Mark’s, or Sanford.

I felt this would be a good place and it ended up being the best choice for me. Saint Mark’s offered him the big campus, and a fresh new school feel that he was after. He liked that it felt like a college campus. He stated, “I felt this would be a good place and it ended up being the best choice for me.” Murray graduated from Saint Mark’s in 1975 and continued his education at the University of Delaware. While at the University of Delaware, he met his future wife Karla. Upon graduation, Brian and Karla went to Springfield, Massachusetts,


where Brian attended law school. They returned to the area to raise a family and have two children, Brandon and Alexa. When his son was in seventh grade and the time came to discuss high school, Brandon shadowed at Saint Mark’s and made the decision to attend, making Murray a Saint Mark’s parent. His daughter also attended Saint Mark’s because she wanted the bigger, coeducational school with more people and opportunities. Murray joined the Spartan Athletic Club (SAC) when his kids started at Saint Mark’s and stayed for the entire eight years of their educations, and then he didn’t stop. He has remained active with SAC and recently joined the Saint Mark’s Advisory Board. When asked what made him choose to become more active in the school, he replied, “It was an alumni thing that got me active. I joined the alumni association after seeing the bonds that happen here. It’s a family.” Murray currently works in real estate law for commercial and residential properties. When asked about any highlights or famous clients, he stated he was in the office one day and met a woman who was in need of help with some properties. She happened to be the spiritual mother of New York Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera. Brian’s work with Mariano Rivera has included multiple real estate projects including a church and work with several charity organizations.

Murray’s time volunteered shows his commitment and love for his alma mater. His favorite Saint Mark’s memory is “Seeing both kids graduate from Saint Mark’s, knowing that they enjoyed their four years. Saint Mark’s did a great job for me and my children. When you graduate from Saint Mark’s, it means something.”

Liz Dawson ’18 in Delaware All-State Theater’s 2018 production of ‘Evita’ This past summer in June and early July, Saint Mark’s Elizabeth Dawson ’18 performed in The Delaware All-State Theater production of Evita. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Evita, a winner of seven Tony Awards, remains one of Broadway’s most historically fascinating stories. Evita is a musical about a woman who finds fame and power by aligning herself with the Argentinian working-class poor and eventually becomes its first lady in a culture and political system run by men. Liz performed in the DAST professional caliber theater production, an achievement that only a small number of students from Saint Mark’s have ever enjoyed. To become a cast member of a production for Delaware All-State Theater, one must pass rigorous solo singing, acting, and dancing auditions in February, usually followed by multiple callback dates in early March. Liz, a veteran of numerous theatrical productions and a long time student of vocal teacher, Jessica Graae, received her invitation to join the cast of Evita on March 21, 2018. This cast included 60 students from more than 30 Delaware schools.

Kristy Craig Anderson ’94 Earns Awards for Dwell Home Staging Company Saint Mark’s alumna Kristy Craig Anderson ’94 started Dwell Home Staging three and a half years ago out of her garage. She was in arts education and an Assistant Principal for twelve years before taking the leap and starting a business that fueled her creative passion. Her company stages vacant homes through furnishing and decorating before they hit the Tampa Bay, Florida real estate market so they sell faster for more money. After much success they are now in a 9,000 square foot warehouse with a team of 8 people and have received numerous awards including nine national awards, most recently as Top 10 Home Staging companies in the US. They’ve also been featured on HGTV, in local and national design and real estate publications, and in books on real estate. Dwell Home Staging and Kristy were recently featured in Good Life Tampa Bay, the local lifestyle TV show of the Tampa area. Kristy stated, “Saint Mark’s robust arts program and disciplined, rigorous academic classes prepared me for both living my passion and running a business.”
