Thinking of you and your family as the anniversary of Father Marcus's passing approaches.

Loved this brother, he was dad to a good friend of mine at the time Paul Rodgers. I served along side of Paul for 8 years. There were many great memories doing practices and services. Hanging out with Paul and finding mischief to get into was always an added bonus. Going bowling or taken the moped for a ride was always fun when your slightly under aged. Pastor Rodgers wasn't afraid to mix it up bringing in evangelical singers into the church. For this I will always be grateful. As I got older this perspective had me seeking a more bible teaching church. It's a little more difficult following along in the Bible at an Episcopal Church when they are in it for the Word of the day, but by the time you find where they are they are done with the reading. I found a great bible teaching church in Plantsville, Ct Faith Living Church! Non Denominational.
Would like to send my heart felt sympathies to all who loved this compassionate man. Thank you Pastor Rodgers for truly loving Jesus Christ and being a pillar for all to see. An amazing glorious mansion. My hope is that we will meet up I heaven so I can thank you once more.
May Pastor Rodgers family be richly blessed with the memories they have. as they continue to celebrate his life. George Schilling Jr

Fr. Marc was a faithful priest who helped many in their walk with the Lord. He was a good friend to all he came to know. We have thought of him many times with good memories over the years since his time as our priest at Trinity Church in Bristol, Connecticut. Our deepest sympathy to June and family. May Fr. Marc now rest in peace with our Lord!

It's so hard to put into words how much love and acceptance I recieved from Fr. Rogers and June at Trinity Church in Bristol CT. They were extremely instrumental in God changing my life to something soooooo much better. They were like parents to me and I'll love them forever. I lost touch after they moved away and thought of them very often and prayed for them. Sending June lots of love and my deepest love and sincere sympathies to you all. I'm sure he heard Jesus say, "Well done. My good and faithful servant. Welcome home"
