After 36 years with Paulist Evangelization Ministries, our Director of Operations Denny Marcotte is retiring at the end of this week. We’d like to thank him for his years of service and dedication to PEM. He has helped guide PEM through many transitions and his ‘punny’ sense of humor always fills the office with laughter.
Denny worked for 10 years alongside our founder Fr. Alvin Illig, CSP. Over the course of his years here he has served PEM in various positions, including leading our Prison Ministry – which he especially enjoys. Of working with the Prison Ministry he says, “Many of the prisoners write and share with us that they have been rejected by society, family and friends. They appreciate so much the contact that they have with us because so many feel abandoned and lonely. They are truly God’s forsaken people.” Denny’s favorite pastimes – when not in the office – are traveling and going to the theatre.
We wish him the best of luck and great peace in his retirement! Thank you Denny!
