Dr. Maher (Michael) Kamell passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, May 5, 2014.  Dr. Maher played a key role in the founding of St. Mark’s in 1970. Dr. Maher and his wife opened their house to newcomers and helped new immigrants who came to New Jersey. He authored many books, monographs and articles in French, English and Arabic in the field of psychology, education, philosophy, religion, aesthetics and Middle East studies.

We remember Dr. Maher’s love and service to St. Mark’s and its congregation and ask for the repose of his soul.

Progress of Cheerful Giver Campaign

The Lord has moved the hearts of many to support the progress or our Cheerful Giver Campaign. Among the list of Cheerful Givers, some of the needy families and people who came from Egypt insisted to contribute. The list includes many names with heroic stories. Some of them are single parents, people who sold their jewelry, students who donated their entire internship’s wages and people who got loans to donate. Such amazing people left no excuse for those who did not donate cheerfully and generously until now.
