The Reverend Deacon Marge Kiss
Deacon Marge has served as Deacon at St. Thomas of Canterbury since 2014. She feels honored and privileged to walk with them in hope and to coordinate the ministries that support the Sunday services. As a member of the Telecare Ministry, she regularly touches base with members, offering them a time to chat and to ask for prayers. At home, Charlie 2, her rescue cat, entertains and, at times, comforts her. Between reading, putting together jigsaw puzzles and finding creative ways to prepare black turtle beans, she makes lists.
