The Reverend Mark Wilson Seminarian Scholarship

About the Reverend Mark Wilson

Fr Mark was an active Cursillista following his and wife Beth's Cursillo Weekend. He served as a Lay Rector, as well. This involvement lead to his and Beth's discernment as to whether they were called, and Mark in particular, to ordained ministry. Their connection with Cursillo Ministry continued and they served on numerous weekend staffs in the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast. Fr Mark's life and ministry were, and continue to be, blessings to all.


The Scholarship Fund

In memory of the late Fr Mark, and in honor of his inspiring wife Beth, a one-time $2,500 seminary scholarship will be awarded to a first-year postulant enrolled in an accredited three-year Master of Divinity program or a one-time $1000 scholarship for a first-year postulant enrolled in the CGC School for Ministry. Candidates must have been active in the Cursillo Ministry in the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast and anticipate continuing to serve as Cursillo Weekend Clergy upon his/her ordination.”
