Four begin working for the diocese
Several new employees have recently begun serving the Diocese of Wichita.
Mark Miller began duties Feb. 11 as the Director of Cemeteries. He succeeds Jim Sheldon who is now retired.
Miller is taking a side step into his new job, which he says reflects his “passion for the Catholic Church…to serve others in this corporal work of mercy to bury the dead.” He previously worked for a regional funeral supply company where he designed and estimated cemetery monuments for dozens of funeral homes throughout the Midwest.
Most of his business career was spent managing operations and sales for a sign and graphics business that he and his wife, Loretta, owned for about 25 years. The Millers and their daughter are members of St. Jude Parish in Wichita.
Liz Clark began working Feb. 25 as the program coordinator of the Totus Tuus and Summer Programs in the Office of Faith Formation. She is a member of St. Joseph Parish, Wichita, and most recently served as an administrative assistant at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School. She succeeds Veronica Hill who is now an executive advancement associate at Kapaun Mt. Carmel Catholic High School in Wichita.
Kris Decker is the new Holy Family Camp coordinator for the Office of Ministry with Persons with Disabilities. She succeeded Christina Streeter on Feb. 13. Decker is a registered nurse and has 18 years of management experience with Via Christi Clinic. She and her husband, Mike, have been members at Church of the Resurrection for 31 years and have two grown children and three grandchildren.
Baylee Schif began her duties Feb. 22 as the part-time assistant coordinator for the Holy Family Camp. A camp buddy for five years, Schif is studying rehabilitation services at Emporia State University and American Sign Language. Schif is a member of St. Mary Parish, Derby-Rose Hill.
